KCL 7 Finals!

After the toughest competition GAFFER has seen in years the Kasigau Champions League 7 reached an exciting climax this weekend in Buguta Village, Kenya! The mens league is always a fascinating spectacle with village rivalries played out on the field!

This year the finals were played at Buguta Primary School sports ground. The biggest village that GAFFER works in made its size felt as hundreds of fans turned out for one of the toughest finals in years! With an exhibition match which pitted teachers against students the crowd was nicely warmed up for the main event! Jora village had seen off tough opposition from their traditional rivals Rukanga and Bungule in the group stages and were ready for a big game. Their experienced team were strong favourites to take the trophy! Tsavo Lions hail from Miasenyi village and had several young players from the successful GAFFER Youngstars team.

Jora took control and the lead early on but with an equalizer just before half time in the baking heat Tsavo Lions set up a second half to savour! A fascinating three-quarters of an hour followed and in the end Miasenyi’s young legs conquered the experienced Jora team with an emphatic 3-1 victory! The crowd went wild and the celebrations continued all the way home for the Miasenyi boys who had earned a wonderful victory!

During the day St Josephs Centre of Hope were on hand to offer free and discrete voluntary counseling and HIV testing for anyone who wished to know their status. 77 people were tested which is a brilliant achievement in the fight against AIDS in Kenya. Well done guys and girls!
