Coastweek -- Football Kenya Federation South Coast Branch Chief Executive Officer Sumba Bwire has send New Year message to the soccer fraternity.

The CEO thanked all the stakeholders in Coast Region for joining hand with the branch in its endeavour to promote the sport.

“On behalf of Football Kenya Federation South Coast Branch and on my own behalf, I would like to wish the players, referees, club officials and entire soccer fraternity a prosperous new year.

“The federation values the contribution of every stakeholder in our endeavour to develop the beautiful game,” said Bwire who thanked all clubs for maintaining discipline.

“Overall, we have recorded an improved discipline in our league.

“Save for a few incidences, I would like to thank the clubs for maintaining high level of discipline which helped us successfully complete the group stage matches. I also appreciate constructive views from clubs.

“Their input will help us to improve the league next season,” he added.

With the conclusion of the top tier FKF South Coast Branch group stage matches the stage is set for the mini league scheduled to kick off after the festive season.

Meanwhile, Coastal based FKF National Super League side Modern Coast Rangers have explained the reasons behind change of  venue for clubs home matches next season from KPA Mbaraki Sports ground to Bomu complex .

Club secretary Ferdinand Ogot explained that easy access to the match venue; affordable costs for venue hiring and standard pitch are factors that made the club shift home base to Bomu.

“Our fan base is in Changamwe and it is easier for our fans to access Bomu ground that to travel to KPA Mbaraki Sports Club.

“These coupled with cheaper rates for hiring the pitch and a high standard pitch with proper drainage system has forced us to reschedule our home matches to Bomu, Ogot said.

He revealed that they have been in consultation with the Chief Executive Officer, Department of Youth, Gender and Sports Rajab Babu who confirmed that the Bomu complex meets the requisite professional standards and specifications for hosting the FKF National Super League and other high profile matches.

The Bomu Complex is among the projects funded by the Mombasa County government aimed at developing sports infrastructure and improving the play fields for the youth.

Other venues constructed under the project include the ultra-modern 3,000 seater Uwanja Wa Mbuzi stadium in Kongowea, Kisauni Mlaleo and Majengo Mvita.
