Andrew Murch Under 16 Tournament kicks off!

This weekend saw the start of GAFFER’s Under 16 tournament in the villages surrounding Mount Kasigau, Kenya! Sixteen teams have been training hard in preparation for what promises to be the toughest edition yet!

With many young stars fresh from successes in the Saul Hull Under 13 tournament now graduating to play alongside their older counterparts, the level of football can only improve! The tournament begins with teams facing off in four groups and battling it out in a Champions League style format with the top two teams from each group progressing to the final stages! Last years champions, Jora FC, were back to try and reclaim their crown but tough challenges lie ahead for all the teams!

The tournament is played in memory of Andrew Murch, an avid football fan from the UK who’s family have supported GAFFER through Alive & Kicking Kenya.
