Migori Youth beats Kibera FC to move fourth in NSL

Migori Youth FC has moved to the fourth spot in the National Super League (NSL) after a 1-0 win against the Nairobi-based Kibera FC over the weekend.

Simon Waswa’s sole goal in the 58th minute at the Migori Green Stadium propelled the team to register its third consecutive win in the NSL.

The wins against Assad, Mombasa Elite, and Kibera have enabled the team to collect 10 points from 10 games with a game in hand after the 11 rounds of the NSL games.

Migori Youth FC Coach Sammy Owano said that the recent performance and the unbeaten home record at home have been great, boosting confidence in the team as they prepare for the next NSL against Bomet-based Silibwet FC on December 2.

The team’s performance, especially in the 2022/2023 campaign, when they finished third in the table and eventually lost in the Kenya Premier League (KPL) playoffs against Wazito (now Muhoroni Youth), has become a motivational aspect that is propelling the team to perform even better.

The good performance of the team has seen two of its players selected in the final list for the Under-18 Kenyan National Team that is currently participating in this year’s Council for East and Central Africa Football Associations (CECAFA) tournament in Kenya.
