Players of Trans Nzoia Falcons, which plays in the Kenya Women Premier League, were involved in a road accident while travelling home after a 4-0 defeat by Ulinzi Starlets at the Ulinzi Sports Complex in Nairobi on Saturday.
The accident occurred at Matunda along the Eldoret-Kitale highways, just some kilometers from Moi’s Bridge and around five players sustained minor injuries.
The driver is said to have lost control and crushed into a nearby bush.
The head coach, Chris Mfede, said the accident could be as a results of fatigue by the driver
“I could not be talking to you now if it were not for God, He gave us a second chance. The accident happened while all players were asleep after a frustrating weekend. The driver looked tired and sleepy as he was driving, he could not even explain how he found himself in the ditch,” he said.
He added that all players reached home safely: “There is no need to raise an alarm but honestly we had a frustrating weekend. We hope it doesn’t happen again. We had enough time to prepare for the game but we ended up disappointed. We even traveled to Nairobi without a team doctor, this paints a bad picture of how women league is run in the country,” he added.
The Falcons won their fist 2022/23 season match last weekend after thrashing Vihiga Queens 2-0 at home.
