Bandari’s Oburu hangs up gloves, takes up new role as goalkeeper trainer

Bandari captain Wilson Oburu has called time on his playing career that has spanned close to two decades.

The 33-year-old Kenya international, who has been skipper of Bandari for three years, has now shifted careers to management, and will now be the club’s goalkeeping trainer.

Bandari Chief Executive Officer Edward Oduor confirmed all these at a club luncheon held in Mombasa.

Oduor also confirmed that former club assistant coach Ken Odhiambo has been reappointed head coach taking over from Paul Nkata who was sacked last week.

“We did not achieve all our targets this season, but it was still important for us to gather and thank the players and the technical bench for their contributions this season,” Oduor said.

“We have made a number of changes both in the technical bench and in the playing unit to ensure we post better results next year. Oburu has said that he is still fit and strong enough to play, and we have allowed him that latitude. He can continue playing as he transitions into his new role,” Oduor added.

Meanwhile, Bandari have selected 16 players from the recently concluded trials that were held last week at the Mbaraki Sports Club, Mombasa and attracted over 300 club aspirants.
