Kenya Police on Saturday clinched the Kenya Hockey Union men's Premier League in style after a 6-1 rout of Kenyatta University (KU) Vultures at the City Park Stadium, Nairobi.

The win sealed Police's first title since 2013 and their second in the club's history. The result took their tally to the season to 73 points with two matches left.

The final whistle drew wild celebrations from the Police players and their technical bench to what has been an emphatic season which has seen them win 24 matches, lost one and drawn another.

An elated Police coach Kenneth Kaunda hugged his players and applauded his technical bench. Kaunda missed the better part of the first leg due to illness but returned to oversee an impressive campaign.

"I am so happy for my players, this is a great achievement. We have been the best team this season and it is only right that we are crowned champions," Kaunda told Nation Sport.

"We have had heartbreaks over the past few years and at times fell short but finally we have captured the title and the team should be proud of its achievements," Kaunda added.

Police needed only two minutes to go ahead as international Willis Okeyo finished off Oliver Echenje's dragged short corner past Vultures keeper Dennis Barasa.
