We are in the BPL to compete, roars Bidco forward Wafula

Noah Wafula says newly promoted Bidco United are in the BetKing Premier League (BPL) to perform and show that they indeed deserve to be amongst the best teams in the country.

The winger is among 11 players roped in at the Thika based side preparing for its debut campaign in the topfilight after sealing promotion from the National Super League (NSL).

Experience

Wafula brings with him much needed experience that will be beneficial to his new side having been a Premier League champion with Tusker FC and also playing for the likes of AFC Leopards, Kakamega Homeboyz and Ugandan heavyweights Vipers SC.

He for sure knows the nitty gritty of playing in the topflight and feels that Bidco have what it takes to compete with the best in the division.

He is quoted on the club’s social media handles as saying, “We are not a small team, actually there’s no small team in the Betking Premier League. As a team we are highly motivated especially after earning promotion from the National Super League. I am not saying that we will win all matches but we are going to take the one game at a time approach.”

Ready

His sentiments were echoed by head coach Anthony Akhulia who also talked up the team’s preps, voicing belief that his players will be ready by the time the season starts on November 20.

“We are doing well. The players are slowly picking after the long break. By the time the league kicks off we will be ready,” he stated.

Bidco sealed promotion to the BPL by finishing second in the NSL last season behind champions Nairobi City Stars.
