The 2018/19 SportPesa Premier League season gets underway this weekend breaking away from the traditional February kick-off.

Hundreds of fans expect a season full of player exploits with the below highly expected to fulfil the desires.

Shafik Batambuze (Gor Mahia)

The 23-year-old returns to the Kenyan football scene after a season in the neighbouring Tanzanian Premier League with Singida United.

The Ugandan left back has already marched straight into K’Ogalo’s starting 11 as replacement for compatriot Godfrey Walusimbi, who departed to South African big wigs Kaizer Chiefs in August.

Batambuze’s work is cut out, to replicate his performance in 2016 with Tusker, one that saw the brewers win a double.

Batambuze is good on crosses and set pieces outside the area.

“I am here to help the club win as many titles as possible,” the former Western Stima and Sofapaka man emphasized.

Mike Madoya (Tusker)

The 2017 Most Valuable Player is among players unveiled at Tusker. Madoya has already proved his prowess in Robert Matano’s squad scoring a brace in a friendly match against Malawi side Silver Strikers.

Having scored seven goals last year and doubled the figure in the just concluded 2018 season, the diminutive offensive midfielder is confident of replicating his form back at Zoo Kericho to guide Tusker to league glory.

Madoya has an eye for goal and knows when to position himself in the danger zone.

“I am excited at my second career move, I am hopeful that I can keep on scoring,” he said.
