Kabras Sugar RFC has appointed Edwin Achoyo as the assistant coach ahead of the new season according to Club’s chairman Philip Jalang’o.
Achoyo has signed a three year contract for the sugar millers as he returns to his former club where he played as fly-half.
Jalang’o said the former player has a three year and replaces Anthony Ogot who resigned from the club to pursue further coaching courses.
Achayo, who joined Kabras in 2014, has immense experience in rugby matters having previously played for several local clubs.
Du Plessis took over from Charles Cardovillis who has since joined Kenya Cup outfit Kenya Harlequins RFC as head coach.
Plessis has hit the ground running having recruited three South African players in the club that is sponsored by West Kenya Sugar Company Limited.
The new foreign faces include second row Enzo Foutie, fullback Logan Basson and scrum-half Claude Joannes who have joined other foreign players Jone Kubu and Tavaga from Fiji.
Contacted for comment, Achayo said he was elated at having a new role at the club.
“I am grateful for the appointment, I understand Kabras players very well. I have played with most of them so I will have easy time with them. I am looking forward to share my vast experience in rugby with the team,” said the former Kenya Harlequins and Mombasa Sports Club player.
Kabras has had high turn overs of coaches since it joined the Kenya Cup. They include Kisumu-based Arthur Shikwe, who guided the team from Kenya Rugby Union (KRU) Nationwide League to Kenya Cup in 2016, Australian Mike Bishop and Cardovillis.
