After earning promotion to Kenyan Premier League, Nakumatt are aiming to keep their status in the top flight.
The team finished fourth in the Nationwide Super League with 77 points and are in the bracket of the four that are expected to make a bow in the league this season. Club's Secretary General Albert Wesonga is happy with current preparations that he feels are key to the team's performance in the league.
"It is going to be our first season on top but we do not want that to affect us at all, we want to make it and prove our doubters wrong. We fought hard to make this promotion a reality and it is up to us to really show that we are capable of challenging the best," Wesonga told Goal.
"We have signed several good players with the much needed experience and quality and the main objective is to leave a mark in the KPL."
The shoppers have already acquired services of left back David Gateri from Bandari, Robert Omnuk (Tusker) and Kepha Aswani from AFC Leopards. Nzoia Sugar, Kariobangi Sharks and Zoo Kericho are the other teams promoted from the second division.
