Share

FCB Nyasa Big Bullets Football Club can confirm the signing of Kenyan defender Collins Odhiambo Okumu on a one-year deal as a free agent until 2024.

The People’s Team has moved to bolster defensive options as Okumu becomes the second Kenyan centre-half ahead of the 2023 season following the announcement of Clyde Sinaji’s signing on Tuesday afternoon.

Okumu, 25, impressed head coach Kalisto Pasuwa during his three-week trial with the club, including his involvement in the 2023 Pre-Season International Bonanza at the weekend.

He came on as a second-half substitute during the 0-0 draw against Mozambican Ferroviário de Nampula on Friday before he played full minutes in our 1-0 loss to UD Songo on Sunday.

Speaking to Bullets media soon after signing the deal, Okumu said playing for the Malawi champions will give him a good platform to showcase his talent.

“It’s a good platform to showcase my talent and I believe Bullets is a big team. I am looking forward to the new challenge and I promise to work hard because I believe in myself,” he reacted.

The former Thika United, Posta Rangers and Bidco United defender paid homage to Bullets fans for the support rendered during the just-ended 2023 Pre-Season Bonanza where he made his debut.

“It was a nice environment because judging by the experience, the fans push you to work extra harder and playing in front of them was a plus for me. I thank them for the support they gave me on Sunday.”
