Antony Kimani has promised that AFC Leopards will hit the ground running in search of their first league title this century after the first five fixtures were released on Wednesday morning.

The Leopards coach is currently sharpening his charges for the upcoming season which kicks off in under a month’s time if government lifts the halt on contact sports following the upsurge in the COVID-19 pandemic.

Kimani has told that he is happy with the preparations so far and the input of the new signings makes the prospects even better.

“The team is in good spirits and with new players coming in we believe they have added the much-needed aspects in the team, definitely what we needed in order to have more stability and depth.”

The grand start of the season is on 20th November with a mouth-watering clash against Western Stima, at home.

Kimani knows how difficult this could turn out to be if they do not start the season on the right foot.

“The goal is to ensure that the team picks as many points as possible and this has to start with the opening fixture.”

“We respect all opponents but our aim is to win matches and challenge for the title.”
