The trio - Richard Chege, Chester Okoyo and Kelvin Ouma, have resumed training and will be available for selection when the former champions face the power men

Former Kenya Premier League Champions Ulinzi Stars have been boosted by the return of three key players ahead of their trip to Western Stima this weekend.

The trio - Richard Chege, Chester Okoyo and Kelvin Ouma - have resumed training and will be available for selection during the match against the power men on Sunday.

Chege was out for three weeks nursing an ankle injury while Okoyo and Kelvin Ouma, who both missed the barren draw against 2009 champions Sofapaka, were suffering from sickness and hamstring problems respectively.

Assistant Coach Sammy Simiyu said on the club’s official website, Ulinzistarsfc.com that the team had greatly been boosted with the return of the trio.

“We are happy the three have come back and it is a big boost to the team because all of them play a big role in the team."

"They have shown that they are ready for action and they are fighting hard to earn a starting place in the team."

Both Okoyo and Ouma were an integral part of the team last year with Ulinzi finishing 6th in the league. Ouma was honoured as the Ulinzi Stars 2012 defender of the year while Okoyo, who has always been a backbone of the team since their league conquest in 2010, was named Midfielder of the year for the second time in a row.

The soldiers who commenced training on Tuesday will be playing Western Stima on Sunday with reports emerging that the Kakamega-based team has been hit by player absence following the just concluded national elections.

Ulinzi have so far managed four points from two matches after a win against Bandari at home and a draw with Sofapaka last weekend.
