40 shortlisted for junior Harambee Starlets camp

The Football Kenya Federation has named Harambee Startlets Captain Ann Aluoch and former Makolanders Midfielder Jackline Akoth as the new National U-20 women soccer team coaches.

The two will be in charge of the team that starts preparation in readiness for the World qualifiers away against Jordan on September 17, 2017. A total of 40 players have been called to camp for the selection.

 “We are committed to developing the game at all levels and across all genders,” says FKF president Nick Mwendwa.

“It is our belief that the national U20 women team will offer the much needed transition for young players to join the Harambee Starlets, something that has been lacking in the past.

“We also feel it is an opportunity for women to step into leadership positions and take up roles that have in the past been held by men, and that is why we have appointed Aluoch and Akoth to head the team’s technical bench.”
