Nairobi Simba in a past match

Reigning Kenya Hockey League Champions Nairobi Simba will start the defense of their title this Sunday with their first match being against Greensharks at the City Park Hockey Stadium. The champions will not get an easy day in the park if Sharks form is anything to go by. They will need all theirs departments working if they are to bag maximum points against a Sharks side which has shown great form in the pre-season tournaments.

On Saturday, former champion Kenya Police will be in action for their first league match when they play Kenya college of Accountancy University (KCA) at 4.00pm at the city park stadium.

The 2011 champions and last year’s runners up are ridding on an incredible form having won three out of three trophies in the calendar year 2013 and will be up to the task in efforts to avoid their catastrophic start to last season where they lost their first league matches something that cost them the title.

 Head coach Kennedy Kaunda has once again reiterated the team’s determination to reclaim the title they so much consider being theirs.

“Once beaten twice shy, our form this year and late last season was not a fluke, we played our hearts out and the trophies this year have come as a result of great teamwork and hard work.” Noted the team coach.

The other match on Sunday will see newly promoted Parkroad playing their first league match against Karate Axiom. Parkroad first league match against Strathmore University did not materialize as the match was rained off.
