KeMU football team taught Meru Teachers College (MTC) a football lesson they will never forget in a midweek friendly match on Tuesday 1st November 2016 at Kaaga Methodist Church soccer pitch. KeMU lit up the match and danced to a different beat. KeMU football team played with artistry, joy and knowledgeable skill. The team which believes in a philosophy of sportsmanship and winning beautifully won the friendly match with swagger and style. They displayed football in its purest form. Despite starting the match a little bit late at 5.30pm the goals still came with ease and at will. KeMU played to get fun and results following the rules of the game. MTC tried to use their physical strength and speed which is their strong point but could not march the creativity and aesthetic standards of the KeMU team.
The KeMU midfield was the engine of the team. The “Magic” midfield contained the likes of Kazeem Adenkule, Albert Nsengumureymi, Sean Opwora and Ian Munene. “Magic” because they have understanding and can play together with their eyes shut. None can play like the other but they need each other. Kazeem Adenkule was the jewel in the KeMU midfield. He was the leader of the orchestra. He displayed great dribbling, perfect ball control and a panoramic vision. KeMU and MTC have always partnered had a peaceful co-existence in matters of sports. Towards the end of last year KeMU beat fellow scholars Chuka University 9-1 at the same venue in a friendly match.
Albert Nsengumureymi an international student studying MSC Agriculture and Development has played for the KeMU team since being a freshman in 2011 and admits to have found a home away from home. Robert “Kangethe” Gichiri the Team Manager was elated after the emphatic win and encouraged the boys to continue working tirelessly and keep improving on both attitude and aptitude. The next match for KeMU will be on Saturday against Maua rangers FC in Maua.
Thanks to the University Management and Dean of Students Jeff Kubai for the support.
