Flyer Gilbert Abala is all but excited after taking up a starting slot in the most recent game against Kenya Police at the Police Sacco Stadium.

The teenager earned his place in the starting squad for the first time in the top flight after three previous cameo appearances.

“This is my first time in the Kenyan premier league and I am still navigating through it as I work towards settling in fully,”

“I had my debut against Muhoroni, and went to miss some games. But I returned to the squad on match day four and went on to earn my first start against Police,”

“I see that as progression and a positive step for me and I hope that I can build up on it to become a regular starter, and a full game player as we go along,” he added

Abala joined Simba wa Nairobi in the offseason from Busia-based club Teens of Hope. He previously turned out for Busia Sugar FC in the lower leagues.
