Strathmore in high spirits ahead of league matches
League title-chasing Strathmore University men’s handball team will be testing their new style of play for this season when they take on the Technical University of Kenya (TUK) and Tigers this weekend.
Speaking to People Sport, coach Peter Mwathi said that even though they are on a winning run having won all their opening four matches, he is not fully satisfied with his boys’ performance and will be introducing a new approach in the way they play going forward.
“We have won all the matches that we have played so far which is good for us. But I am not impressed with the way the boys have done it. We have, therefore, changed our way of attacking by making it more offensive and a change on our defense making it more offensive towards the ball. I will, therefore, be testing this style of play this weekend hoping that it will now bring out clearly the type of handball we are to play this season,” Strathmore University men’s handball team coach Peter Mwathi said.
Strathmore who are second on the top tier Kenya Handball Federation (KHF) National League on goal difference but jointly tieing on eight points with league leaders and 2016 champions Ulinzi men’s handball team, could reduce the goal-scoring gap with them and Ulinzi if their new offensive style of play work out as planned by coach Mwathi.
Strathmore are thus scheduled to face-off with former champions TUK men’s handball team on Saturday from 10.30 am at Nyayo Stadium before wrapping up their weekend matches with a clash against Tigers from 3 pm at the same time.
