Wolves Recce Nyaundo said the league has become competitive in readiness to produce the best players to compete at the international level.
“The league is going on well since we have remained with two to three matches before ending the league. We are happy that the organization of the league is good, the teams are improving game by game as we are moving on well. We have very competitive referees in East Africa,” said Nyaundo.
He added that the league did quite well with a lot of improvement on basic skills, skating and shooting skills, hoping that since they are going to have the Roll Ball world Cup this year, they hope that the country will present a good team and completive one.
“Generally, the league is good. If you are able to observe and look at the standings, the difference is two to three points meaning the league is competitive having seen this game grow since 2012 till now as a country. Kenya is the only country that has a continuous league running round the year despite the pandemic affecting the 2020/2021 season,” said Nyaundo.
