I arrived at this great club as a young player, full of dreams and hoping to achieve my targets as a footballer. Growing up in Western Kenya and playing for the football-mad Kakamega High School, I always wanted to eat, live and sleep football.
I used to watch my elder brother Sammy play for Tusker FC and he told me very many good things about this amazing club. I aspired to play here one day.
When the chance came, I did not think twice. I jumped on the opportunity and see where it has taken me.
I had to wait for almost a month to make my first ever appearance. I came on as a substitute and scored the winning goal. Stuff of dreams you would say!
From then on, I have witnessed immense phases of growth as a player and as a person. My fellow players, the coaches, management and most of all the fans, have held me down since day one. I have not had the opportunity to play infront of the Yellow Marine because of the restriction on fans, but on social media I have felt the love of the yellow and black family.
I am forever indebted to everyone at the club. To the management for allowing me into the team, to coach Robert Matano for giving me the opportunity and to my teammates for their ever present help and advice.
My brother Sammy and the rest of my family have guided me through this road and I will always remember them for the support.
It has finally come a time for me to leave the club and I leave with my held high, heading to a higher ground. I didn’t think it would come true, but we said we are living a dream. My dreams have come true.
I am heading out to Sweden, but I am taking this chance to say thank you to everyone, thank you to the black and yellow family.
Cheers, Meja mdogo.
