Mjanaheri Secondary School Head Coach Geoffrey Nyamumbo is confident that his side has the quality to fight for the Coast Regional school games championship that starts on September 2nd at Shimo la Tewa high school in Mombasa.

Mjanaheri, who emerged champions in Kilifi County, will participate for the first time in the coastal region competitions and Nyamumbo has no doubt they will do well.

“My boys understand and know that there is a big challenge because the teams they are going to meet at that level must also be well organized,” he said.

“The school has young local talents who play for the FKF Division 2 Northern zone pool A league side, Beach Bay, and have enough experience to compete in a top level competition,” he added.

The Magarini sub county-based school will face Mwavumbo, Kenyatta Mwatate from Taita Taveta County and Tononoka secondary school in pool A.

“We know Tononoka has experience in these competitions but the others are newcomers like us so I am hoping for the best and National is our main target,” said Nyamumbo.

Nyamumbo also said the school management had been supportive in their journey, especially the school Principal Juma Njema who ensured the team had good training facilities and enough equipment for the competitions.

Elsewhere Mombasa County Champions Serani Secondary school will face Kinondo from Kwale, Mororo from Tana River as well as Kizingitini from Lamu in Pool B.

This is how the group stages look like in other competitions:
