Kenya: Promoted Bandari Plot to Raid Rival Squads for Stars

NEWLY elevated Kenya Premier League side Bandari FC have warned teams in the national ranks to prepare for a major raid on their players as the Mombasa side prepares to make massive recruitment for the new season.

Bandari who bounced back to the KPL after spending only one season in Nationwide Zone "A" have said they have an attractive package for players from KPL sides and will be looking to boost all areas of the team from goalkeeping, defence, midfield and striking.

The Kenya Ports Authority sponsored side's head coach Rishad Shedu said they were targeting nine new players from KPL clubs. Shedu left Mombasa on Tuesday evening for an ankle operation on his left leg but said they will negotiate with the clubs and hopefully finalise a the signings before they intensify their training next month.

Their bouncing back to the KPL ranks has sparked excitement in Coast fans who have been starved of KPL action since the relegation of Bandari and Congo Boys in 2011. Bandari vows to raid KPL sides in their major recruitment ahead of their re-bounce to the national league
