Kenya Hockey Union men’s Premier League side Green Sharks set the wrong foot forward starting the season. Beaten by three goals to nil by Wazalendo definitely sent them down to deep waters.

This narrows us down as players to the basics of the game where discipline, commitment, and passion will be needed. Both physical and the training of the game should be directed to the ultimate goal,” added on Mwangi.

We are looking forward to an incredible play and positive results,” said Ngala.
