Osano enjoying his FKF Premier League debut season with City Stars

Nairobi City Stars goalkeeper Jacob Osano says he is enjoying his debut season in the FKF Premier League.

Osano, who is on his third season at the Kawangware-based outfit, has been a revelation at the club since making his maiden FKF PL appearance in their 2-0 win over Kenya Police on 16 October 2022.

Osano has featured in 17 of City Stars’ 19 matches this so far. Simba wa Nairobi are currently second on the log with 35 points, five points behind league leaders Kakamega Homeboyz.

He has started and completed 16 games, registering a total of eight clean sheets.

The former Wazito, KCB and Nairobi Stima goalkeeper, who has since established himself as a first choice keeper and reducing experienced Stephen Njunge to a back-up role, credits hard work for his impressive form.

“It’s a nice feeling since it is my first season playing for City Stars in the top tier league,” said Osano.

“Managing eight clean sheets in 17 matches to help the team sit at second spot at the moment is a great achievement that comes through hard work and team support. The competition level in the team makes everything possible.”

Interesting, Njunge started all the 33 matches for City Stars last season with Osano making the squad only 18 times as his understudy.
