Ulinzi Stars have received a boost with the return of Mark Bikokwa ahead of the second leg of Kenyan Premier League.

Bikokwa has returned to the soldiers’ fold following a lengthy absence as he took part in a military course in Isiolo. The former Nzoia Sugar forward has already started training under head coach Dunstan Nyaudo along with the experienced Geoffrey Kokoyo and Omar Boraafya.

Bikokwa is already looking forward to reclaim his position in the team as they strive to win a trophy this season. “I am back to the team and happy to be part of it as we head to the second leg.

"I have really missed action and can’t wait to be back. I know I will have to work for my place in the team but that is what football should be like – competition and fighting for your place.

“For the time I was out, I should say I have learnt a lot as a person and also as a professional and I am glad to find the team doing well; I believe I am a better player now and I hope to have an impact in the team.

"There is good teamwork under the coaches and that is the main ingredient we need for growth,” Bikokwa told the club’s official website.

Ulinzi Stars are still expecting more players to return ahead of the grueling second leg campaign.
