Kayole Starlet player Lucy Njeri is among 30 grassroot coaches who have begun their coaching journey at Kariobangi North Primary School.

She has a rich football journey starting out at Kariobangi Sports, Old is Gold, Makolanders, Soccer Sisters, and is currently in Kayole Starlet.

Her aim is to acquire knowledge and skills that she can use to create a new pool of talented footballers and fill the gap for the lack of women coaches, especially in the FKF Women Premier League.

“There’s a gap, especially in the FKF Women Premier League where there is a lack of women coaches, and my aim here, is to acquire as much knowledge as I can and try and help fill in this gap,” said Lucy Njeri.

She continued, “To all women footballers, beĀ  it past or present, the time is now, take up these courses, get the knowledge and skills, and let’s help build the women’s game.”

The opening ceremony was presided by FKF NEC Nairobi Region Michael Majua. Also in attendance were FKF Nairobi East Chairman Amos Wakili, and FKF Nairobi East Secretary General, Dickson Doyo.

The course under the tutelage of Jerim Owuor will run for ten days.
