Gor 3 AFC 2

After two penalties and plenty of drama that was the result of the first league clash between the old firm in over two years.

The result takes Gor Mahia up to 6th in the 16 team Kenya Premier league with 6 points whilst Ingwe find themeselves rooted to the bottom of the table with only a single point from their 4 games.

Its good to know that despite the relative lack of strength of these two teams on the local scene, they can still serve up a feast of thrilling football when they collide on the pitch

Same old same old…

Who would have guessed it. Within a week of Ingwe’s (AFC Leopards) epic return to top flight football the old spectre of match abndonments would not be far behind.

Their first match back in the KPL against the newly renamed Nairobi City Stars was abandoned in the 60th minute when the swollen crowd of Football fans brought down a perimeter fence surrounding the pitch with AFC Leopards trailing 1-0 to their hosts. The finger pointing is already in full force with Stadium officials at the World Hope centre in Kawangware blaming an influx of ‘illegal fans’ for the abandonment.

They say that they sold 2000 official tickets but there may have been more than 5000 people watching the game. Which leaves this blogger wondering, if there were official tickets, where did the other 3000 odd prove that they had a rights to access the ground?
