Bandari FC will begin the new 2022/23 Kenyan Premier League season with a home tie against Sofapaka this Sunday.
While teams have taken long to kick off the new campaign due to the impasse experienced with the football management in the country, Bandari FC goalkeeper trainer Wilson Oburu believes that despite the setback that came with the delay, it has been a good time for cohesion.

“We didn’t want this long break just as any other team since the people who suffered most were the players. We played a series of friendlies in that period and I think the more the restart was delayed the more we knew each other better. I believe the preparation time was enough and we will be ready on Sunday,” Oburu told Pepeta.
Asked how their new signings were adapting, Oburu stated that they had been impressed by the new faces and can’t wait to see them in competitive action.
“We went for the players we felt would boost the team and so far I think they have adapted well. They’ve blended in well and now we wait to see them feature in competitive games,” he added.
Bandari finished third in the last competitive league and it remains to be seen if they can go a step further this season. After the opener against Sofapaka, they have ties against Nzoia, KCB, Police FC, and Mathare United in their first five games.
