Nairobi City Stars forward Mohammed Omar Bajaber built up on his two second-half appearances in the FKF Premier League against Tusker and KCB to a start on Monday 6 June 2022 against AFC Leopards in Thika Stadium.
Bajaber, on loan from Starfield Academy, earned his first-ever topflight start during the matchday 33 tie that ended 1-1.
He contributed to the goal scored with a second assist as he went on to clock 63 minutes before making way for Rowland Makati who went on to earn his top-flight bow.
“I am glad to have made my first start in the topflight and I am hoping I will have many more to come.”
“I want to thank the coaches for having the trust in me to deliver. It is unfortunate though that we did not win in that particular game but I am happy to have contributed to the goal.” said Bajaber
His first start came a week after he was left on the bench during matchday 32 against Gor Mahia in Kasarani.
His debut came in mid-May against Tusker in Ruaraka when he substituted Nicholas Kipkirui five minutes to time. He was to substitute the same player at halftime in the next game against KCB in his second game.
