Caution leaves ‘Tony’ distraught

Newton Ochieng against Muhoroni Youth on Sun 26 Aug 2023

Newton Ochieng’s return to the Nairobi City Stars squad for a game against Shabana on Sunday 4 February 2024 in Machakos suffered a massive setback after he was slapped with a straight red card.

Tony, as he is popularly known, was handed his marching orders within seven minutes – alongside Shabana’s Prince Ayeko – after coming on as a substitute after being found in the thick of a scuffle.

“There was a bit of a push and pull and I went in to help contain the situation. Unfortunately, I was pointed out as the chief culprit. To my shock, the next thing I saw was a red card being flushed at me,”

“I will take the time out to focus on my training then return to contest the games that I will be eligible to play in,” he added

Tony has so far featured in ten of the 20 games played so far this season clocking 309 regular game minutes.
