    RE.KHU fixtures for NOC – Kenya floodlights hockey tournament,it is shocking to me that the Winners for National hockey league 2010 (kARATE AXIOM )was not invited for this very important tournament.
    This shows how KHU is feeling about other teams .Also this brings out the issue of Nairobi Hockey league which KHU has killed.Why only concentrate on big teams. Hockey cannot improve on such double standards.
    On this issue also the UMPIRES must go for fitness test before they get to umpire this years league.this will improve players believe in umpires and less cards and good decisions on the spot.

    All the best to all the participants and i hope KPLC doesn’t dissapoint

  3. Robert says:

    It was a great tournament and thanks for some good umpiring from the officials. The electronic time keeper is also great, no “under-table” extensions to favour some teams!!

    @ George Otieno: I think it was wise of KHU not to include all teams. There has to be a motivating factor for teams to not only win the national league and join the premier league, but also to finish in the top 4 of the premier league. It is not to belittle the national league teams. I hope next year the winners of this ‘top 4’s pre-season’ tourney will get cash prizes.
