Gor Mahia FC number one fan Jaro Soja has revealed he will arrange to have the club play a series of friendly matches at the refurbished Busia County Stadium after the completion of the Kenya Premier League.
Jaro Soja plans Gor friendlies in Busia
Speaking after meeting Busia Governor Sospeter Ojaamong and a visit to the Stadium on Tuesday, Soja the proclaimed “Chief of Defence Gor Mahia Defence Forces” said Busia County Stadium is better than Sony and Thika Stadiums.
Flanked by Gor Mahia Busia County branch chairman James Anyango and County Sports Officer Margaret Oduma, Soja said the Stadium befits Premier League matches if the County Government will erect perimeter fence to obstruct fans from entering the pitch.
” Gor has many fans in Busia and Eastern Uganda, thus the need for the club to use the Stadium for some of their League matches in 2017. The club last played at the border town in 1987 in the Moi Golden Cup against Busia United which they won 2-1.
He said it is due to public demand and assurance by the Governor that Gor management should consider Busia as its home ground to host some matches next season.
Soja exuded confidence Gor will win their fourth successive league title despite trailing leaders Tusker by four points and with five matches to go.
” Tusker are losing in Mombasa this weekend and we win against Stima. We are also yet to meet them in a match we shall emerge winners.
Our other match is against Mashemeji (Ingwe). They are known to rise to the occasion when they are off-form but the players are aware of the tie and they will not take chances,” he said.
Oduma thanked Soja for the planned Gor Mahia friendlies , adding that Busia is the mother of talents with Tottenham striker Victor Wanyama hailing from the County.
