Football Kenya federation has unveiled a provisional squad that will represent Kenya in the forthcoming CECAFA under twenty Women event this July in Nairobi. The list largely features players who took part in the Chapa Dimba tournament.
A squad of 36 players is set to report to a training camp this weekend at the Barclays Sports Club in Nairobi. Mathare United Women’s Teresia Lundu and Judith Atieno have been dropped from the Harambee Starlets squad.
In a FKF communique, a total of 36 players have been named to hit camp ahead of the Cecafa event. They will head to camp for a selection exercise is set to kick off on May 18, 2019, at the Barclays Sports Club in Nairobi.
The list draws most of its players from the Chapa Dimba na Safaricom Tournament with a few of the stars currently part of the Chapa Dimba na Safaricom All Stars team touring Spain.
Kenya U20 team was last active in 2017 when they took part in the World Cup Qualifiers and fell to Ghana in the final qualifying round. They had taken out Botswana and Ethiopia in the preliminary rounds.
The selection comes barely a week after most of the Kenya women League teams laid down their tools citing frustration and broken promises by the federation.
