The Central region will this weekend know which teams will represent them at the Chapa Dimba Na Safaricom national finals.

With reigning champions Euronuts exiting the tournament in the group stages, the region will crown a new champion in the boys’ category. Defending girls’ champions Falling Waters from Laikipia (formerly Barcelona FC) will get a chance to win back to back regional titles.

“The hardest bit about being at the top is remaining there. We do not take it lightly that we managed to become the Season two Central region winners and our goal is to successfully defend the title. I have prepared the girls well enough in readiness for the tournament and I expect nothing but a win and I’m looking forward to some of them securing a spot to attend the training camp in Spain,” said Coach Emman Gullit, Falling Waters FC.

In the first boys’ semifinals, Ulinzi Youth from Laikipia will play Kiamatugu boys from Kirinyaga as JYSA from Thika take on Irigiro from Maragua in the other semifinal.

Falling Waters will play Karima Queens from Nyeri in the first girls’ semifinal while last season’s losing finalists, Limuru Starlets will take on Achiever’s Queens from Thika in the second semifinal.

The winners will then face off on Sunday with all games set to be played at the Nanyuki stadium.

During last year’s regional final, Barcelona FC beat season one regional champions, Limuru Starlets 2-1 and at the national finals they were eliminated by eventual winners Kitale Queens from Rift Valley at the semifinals stage.

The winning team in both the boys’ and girls’ categories will walk away with KES 200,000 each and an opportunity to represent the region at the national finals joining North Eastern’s Berlin FC from Garissa, Coast region’s Yanga FC from Malindi and Kwale Ladies where KES 1,000,000 will be up for grabs.

The runners up will not walk away empty-handed as they will take home KES100,000 with a host of individual prizes up for grabs for the best performing players.

Chapa Dimba na Safaricom Central region Golden Boot award winner Jane Njeri has received a call up into Kenya’s national Women’s football team Harambee Starlets for her exemplary performance in the tournament.

Njeri has been named by Harambee Starlets coach David Ouma in the provisional squad for the Turkish Women Cup scheduled for March 2nd to 11th, 2020.

Njeri who featured for Falling Waters bagged six goals to emerge as top scorer of the Chapa Dimba tournament Central region finals held in Nanyuki on January 18th-19th to catch the eyes of the national team selectors.

During the Chapa Dimba finals, Njeri bagged a brace to lead Laikipia’s Falling Waters to dethrone holders Limuru Starlets 3-1.

In Turkey, Njeri will rival in scoring goals Northern Ireland’s Simone Magill holder of the fastest international goal in women’s football.

Northern Ireland is expected to feature in the eight nations tournament where Magill who plays English based side Everton has been called up to bolster her country’s squad.

In June 2016, Magill claimed herself a world record by scoring the fastest ever goal at international women’s level in a European Qualifying match against Georgia. The 11-second goal beat the previous 12-second record scored by US forward, Alex Morgan.

Magill achieved an eleven-second goal against Georgia at the start of a European Qualifying match on 3 June 2016, after chasing down the ball and then receiving a cross from a teammate.

The Turkish tournament is set to act as a build-up to the upcoming Africa Women Cup of Nations qualifiers, to be played in April and June this year.
