Sofapaka defeated Nzoia Sugar on Sunday 12th January in a match that was played at Kenyatta Stadium, Machakos and club captain George Maelo has lauded team mates for their positive response over the weekend.
“We had a good performance over the weekend against a tricky Nzoia Sugar. In the first half they gave us a good test and largely frustrated us but in the second half we showed character and our mental strength that made us get the four goals. ”
“Am happy with our new signings because they have adjusted to our system of play despite we being on a jelling process. The new players who have had opportunities have performed well and it has given us a lot of depth and competition in the squad.”
On his goal, captain Maelo adds to being delighted having been on the score sheet;
“Personally am delighted to have been on the score sheet for the team just after five minutes of being on the pitch. After several assists for the team I finally scored and more so as the club’s captain it generally feels good.”
“We got two matches to go before the end of the January and currently we are not in our best position. I would like to urge my fellow team mates to give their best to win the two encounters so as to be in championship contention.” Maelo concluded
The team will be out of action this weekend following a bye in FKF Shield Cup round 64 fixture. The team will continue with preparations ahead of upcoming league tie away to host Chemelil Sugar FC.
