Nairobi City Stars paid a courtesy call to Laiser Hill Academy to give back following the signing of one of their alumni Timothy Noor Ouma aka Babu back in 2020.
Babu has since fitted in well to the Simba wa Nairobi family having improved on his debut season in 2020/21 FKF Premier League to become an integral part of the team.
“Our connection with Laiser Hill is Timothy Babu Ouma, whom we signed right after the cleared from the establishment in 2020,” said City Stars team coordinator Samson Otieno during the visit
“Our visit was to hand them a token of appreciation as a way of thanking them for providing us with a great performer. We hope it will encourage the lads still at the shool to follow in Babu’s path,”
“We will continue engaging with Laiser Hill with a view of tapping into their rich talent base in future.” added Samson
Tony Kingori, the Dean of Students and Director of Programmes, gave a vote of thanks after the visit:
“We are very grateful for the kind gesture from the management of City Stars FC. Timothy Ouma has been great revelation of talent from our school to this great club. We won many awards with him and wish him all the best in his future career.” he added
Thus far, Babu has had an improved season and, from 22 games into the 2021/22 season, has scored four times and provided seven assists and as many pre-assists.
He has since broken into the National team and has so far clocked two games against Rwanda and Uganda during 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
