Tusker coach Sam Timbe has expressed faith in Duncan Ochieng and Lloyd Wahome following their appointments as captain and assistant captain respectively.

Ochieng took over the armband from James Situma, who left the club last season for Kakamega Homeboyz.

Situma was released by the Brewers alongside 14 other players in a massive change that was executed by the immediate former champions.

Timbe, who joined Tusker last January, said that he had no problem picking his captains with barely a month into the job.

“Duncan and Lloyd were a straight forward pick for having been the longest serving players in the club. They are natural leaders and even when I got here it was clear to see. I have complete faith in them and believe that they will lead this club to new success.”

Speaking after his appointment, Ochieng acknowledged the huge task ahead: “I am happy and grateful for this appointment and would like to thank the technical bench for entrusting me with leading such a great club.

"It is not an easy task but I will do my best alongside Lloyd and the playing unit to make sure that we lead this club to great new heights.”
