Gor Mahia have met all objectives they had set to, at the beginning of their seven-day Nyanza tour, which kicked-off on Monday 26 December. According to the club’s Vice Chairman, Faiz Ochieng, the team has been able to take its influence to the grassroots, ultimately winning even more fans.
No chest thumping or bragging here, with the Nyanza preseason tour advancing well, Gor Mahia Secretary General George Bwana believes all the club had targeted for in the excursion has been reached and so far the tour is a success.
Mr George Bwana, who was speaking to futaa.com, acknowledged that the whole event was supposed to pay off in three great ways: taking the team to the fans, trying out new players and to scout for outstanding talent; which he says have been successful so far.
-We went to Nyanza for three major reasons, first we wanted our fans to meet the players since we observed that they could be starved as we play most of our games in Nairobi, we also aimed at trying out our new players so that we can know how best to use them, in preparation for next season, thirdly we also wanted to see if we can find some untapped talent and help develop. So far I can say we have achieved these, he said.
