Former champions Butali Sugar Warriors sent a strong message on their intentions to reclaim the Kenya Hockey Union (KHU) men’s Premier League at the weekend with an 8-0 hiding of Western Jaguars.

The Kisumu-based side hammered Western Jaguars 8-0 in the opening encounter at the City Park Stadium on Sunday in what was a winning start for new coach Godfrey Wakachunga.

Wakachunga replaced former coach Cliffe Okello, who died on January 24 this year. And Wakachunga has already sounded a warning shot to his title rivals of his team’s intention to wrestle back the gong.

“That is the perfect start any coach would want from his team and we are yet to hit top gear yet. Teams should be very afraid to face us,” a confident Wakachunga said. A brace each from Emmanuel Simuyu and Vincent Odhiambo set Butali on course for an emphatic result.

It was paramount for Butali to get off to a winning start with champions Strathmore University Gladiators and title rivals Kenya Police all recording winning starts last weekend.

Butali’s big scoreline took them to second on the league standing on three points, a point behind leaders United States International University of Africa (UISU-A), who came from behind to beat Nakuru 2-1 at the same venue.
