Gor to play Ugandan giants in pre-season friendly

Gor Mahia have tentatively agreed to play Ugandan club SC Villa in a high profile friendly match next week.

The clash is set for the Namboole Stadium in Kampala in a yet top be decided day.

Before then, the Kenyan Premier League champions are also primed to pay two more build up matches in Kisumu County this weekend.

First, Frank Nuttal’s team will face Bondo Combined in the first edition of the Fidel Odinga Memorial Cup on Saturday.

The late Fidel, son of the country’s former Prime Minister Raila Odinga was an ardent supporter cum patron of the team.


The second friendly match will be against premier league rivals Western Stima.

Nuttal is using these pre-season games to prepare for a congested season ahead. K’Ogalo is set to compete in the Kenyan Premier League, CAF Africa Champions League, Cecafa Club Championship, Top 8 tournament and domestic Cup.

The match against thirteen-time Ugandan champions SC Villa is however undoubtedly the toast of this pre-season fixtures.

A source close to the goings on say all is done and dusted.

“Gor Mahia will be in Uganda for a couple of days and the club management will be footing all the bills. The match could be played either on Saturday or Sunday in Kampala.”

Gor have so far defeated Sudan club Al Hilal and Ethiopian giants St Georges in two of their pre-season games.
