Six-foot-four stopper Elly Kessy Osotsi is in line for his top-flight debut after being named in the 18-man squad to face FC Talanta in a third-round 2022/23 FKF Premier League match in Ruaraka on Sunday 4 December 2022 starting 3 pm.
Other than centreback Osotsi, formerly of Kangemi All-Stars, left-back Dennis Decha Wanjala, and goalkeeper Elvis Ochoro made the squad for the first time this season.
The trio takes up the places of right and left fullback Calvin Masawa, defensive mid-cum-stopper Ronney Kola, and goalkeeper Stephen Njunge who were part of the last squad that lost to Tusker at the same venue last Sunday.
While Masawa and Kola featured in the game, Njunge made the bench.
