Nzoia Sugar FC now Nzoia United set to play in Kenyan Super league this season

Bungoma County: Founded in 1982 Nzoia sugar FC played in Division 1 and thereafter proceeded to top league in 1986 before joining the Kenyan premier league and crowned champions in 2003/4 season.

Financial constrain led to the disbandment of the team in the year 2004, a situation that saw top players joining other teams in Kenyan premier league.

Nzoia Sugar MD Saul Wasilwa, Board Chairman Laurence Sifuna and Director John Nzombo decided to revive the club last year with full sponsorship from Nzoia Sugar Company.

The club’s pitch is not in good condition since 2004 after it was deserted. The team chairman Yapets Mokua revealed that the budget is in the pipeline to renovate the stadium for future matches.

Mokua adds that since their target is to venture into Kenyan Premier League, they don’t want to encounter the same problem Western Stima encountered this season after the closure of their home Ground Bukhungu stadium in Kakamega county after failing to meet the minimum safety requirements.

”The management is working on projects to revive the dilapidated structures and construction of two new terraces for funs to enjoy football,” says Mokua.

Evidently, the field’s partially collapsed inner perimeter fence, poor drainage and washrooms makes it impossible to host any big matches.

The coach, Former Muhoroni Youth coach Joseph Imonje who took over the team last season from yusuf chippo who deserted the team at the end of the season, has already seen the team emerge 3rd in Kenya Division 1 zone B group 1 championship last season, after Topfry All stars now playing in Kenyan premier league and West Kenya sugar who came second.

Imonje has had two previous stints at Nzoia FC and not new to the Sudi environment at Nandolio. He coached the team in the late 1990s before giving way for Noah Wanyama in the year 2000.
