Kenya's Future In Football Looking Great Due To Good Youth Structures, Says Chege 1

Kenya could quickly climb up the ladder in future FIFA rankings and become a powerhouse in football considering the youth development structures presently in place, a football administrator has said.

Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Aberdares branch Chairman Davies Chege has praised the current office for making the U-16 boys national team a reality, adding that it will go a long way in producing future players for the senior team.

“I appreciate the current Federation’s efforts to actualize the current Kenya U-16 boys team that helps nurture and develop football at a tender age hence creating a pool for recruitment of players to the Kenya National Senior team,” said Chege.

At the start of 2019 FKF assembled a group of 30 players under the age of 15, to join a homeschooling program implemented in partnership with the Wadi Degla Project. 

For purposes of exposure, the team took part in the Mediterranean International Cup in Spain, stumbling out in the quarterfinal of the consolation stage. They also took part in the inaugural edition of the CECAFA U-15 Tournament in Eritrea, only losing out to Uganda in the finals.

Chege has also commended FKF for training over 2800 coaches in the Basic/Advanced (CAF D License) Level, with a further 400 coaches undertaking the CAF C Level course over the last four years.

“The Federation has done a commendable job training over 2000 coaches that has help cater for proper training of the current Kenya U-16 boys team,” said Chege.
