Kenya: Tusker FC retain FKF Premier League title following win over Posta Rangers

For the second straight season Tusker FC are champions of Kenya’s FKF Premier League after the Brewers finished the job with Sunday’s 2-0 victory over Posta Rangers. Shami Kibwana and Jackson Macharia scored the goals for Tusker in a shutout win over the mid-table side, giving Tusker their thirteenth domestic league title and a spot in the qualifying rounds of the 2022-23 CAF Champions League.

Tusker completed the season with a 21-match unbeaten run starting towards the end of January that helped them to overtake title rivals Kakamega Homeboyz, including a 2-0 victory over Homeboyz in early May that was crucial during the final stretch. Tanzania national team forward Ibrahim Joshua paced a balanced Brewers attack with ten goals this season along with regular contributions from Kibwana, Macharia and Ugandan forward Deogratious Ojok.
