In the ended mid transfer window, Nairobi City Stars roped in two fullbacks Bolton Omwenga and Kevin Chumsy Okumu on loan from Wazito.

Left back Bolton arrived from Tanzania’s Biashara United while right back Chumsy returned from Wazito whom he joined late last year after serving City Stars for four years.

Their arrival of the two versatile fullbacks has fixed City Stars vulnerability on either flanks to the delight of head coach Sanjin Alagic.

Bolton, a former Nzoia Suar, Kariobangi Sharks and KCB left back was a miss in the last transfer window as he went to Tanzania while Chumsy opted for something new hence his move to Wazito.

Months later, they were both a part of Simba wa Nairobi.

“We knew it from beginning of the season that we’ll suffer in those two positions if we didn’t bring in quality players. Unfortunately, even with a clear plan, we were not able to sign the players we wanted as our target Bolton left for Tanzania and Chumsy went to Wazito,”

“Now they are here and they have brought really positive impact on our flanks. They are quality players with the ability to play good both defensively and offensively with quality crosses,”

“They have adapted very well in our playing style in such a short time.” added Sanjin

Bolton came off the bench to make his debut in an away game against Kakemega Homeboyz while Chumsy earned his first Premier League game in City Stars colors against Zoo where he scored on his debut.

With both players on the pitch, City Stars has now registered four straight wins over Mutomo Tigers in the Domestic Club, Zoo FC, Western Stima and lately against Mathare United.

Bolton and Chumsy were the only additions to the squad in the mini transfer window that lasted the entirety of February 2021.
