Season 2019/20

4th season of KBS in the second tier

3 promotions in 3 years + 3 good seasons in NSL = What a great achievement!
We moved up so fast, may be too fast. We have actually reached our limits.
Now we need to make a lot of changes to put our house in better order (facilities, Board, technical staff, players, fan base...) and find more sustainable partners. Then things might go up further and the Black Stars will shine again.
Already an experimented coach and better players joined our project in August. It’s very encouraging...
All the best guys!

2019.20 season from 1st September 2019 to 16th May 2020

The competition has been suspended by FKF due to the sanitary situation. We will play in NSL next season. Stay fine, stay safe. See you in September...


Most of our sport and education activities have been suspended due to COVID-19 crisis but our actions in Kibera are sill continuing. They have been aiming at supporting the families of our members. Restricted movements, gatherings in market not allowed, no job... mean very little thing to put in the plates at home. Time are even harder in a slum, harder for our players, harder for our kids.

See the details of our actions here:

Position of KBS after 26 rounds = number 16 (out of 20)

The full standings

The second leg 2019/20 fixtures:

Match 26

KBS - Vihiga Utd: 0 - 3
Scorer: -
Saturday 7th March in Camp Toyoyo (Jericho, Nairobi)

Another bad day for KBS. We lost 3-0, not bcos our mature opponents were far better than us. But how can a team win if the strikers are not able to score clear chances and defenders concede easy goals?

Match 25

Vihiga Bullets - KBS: 2 - 0
Scorer: -
Saturday 30th February in Bukhungu Stadium (Kakamega)

Our players played well but our opponents were far more efficient...

Match 24

KBS - Shabana: 3 - 2
Scorer: Gaucho (55’), Erico (69’ and 85’)
Sunday 23rd February in Camp Toyoyo (Jericho, Nairobi)

3 points and 3 goals today. So proud of u guys!
Our opponents were leading twice but our courageous players were able to overtake them. Congratulations!

Match 23

KBS - Ushuru: 0 - 1
Scorer: -
Saturday 8th February in Camp Toyoyo (Jericho, Nairobi)

No point. No goal..... So sad!

Match 22

Administration Police - KBS: 0 - 0
Scorer: -
Saturday 1st February in Camp Toyoyo (Jericho, Nairobi)

Once again = Not bad, but not so good... still an away point taken, but still no win in 2020 yet and only 2 points taken in 3 games against bottom teams. We cannot be satisfied. We need to wake up guys before it’s too late!

Match 21

KBS - St Joseph: 1 - 3
Scorer: Dawo (35’)
Saturday 26th January in Camp Toyoyo (Jericho, Nairobi)

Not good at all after we lost 1-3 at home against the bottom team... what a very bad day for KBS! Very disappointing!

Match 20

Modern Coast - KBS: 0 - 0
Scorer: -
Saturday 18th January in Serakani club (Mombasa)

Not bad, but not so good... still an away point taken, we accept it. Our new players need time to adapt, our team needs to be rebuilt again. Not easy, we need to be a bit patient but there is already fire at our back....

Match 19

KBS - Muranga Seals: 1 - 2
Scorer: Makina(6’)
Saturday 12th January in Camp Toyoyo (Jericho, Nairobi)

Let’s forget this bad restart in 2020, our opponents were better than us today. Ok, we missed 5 players (left, injured) from the starting 11 who won against the leader before the break. But it was not a reason to play so bad, to be so careless and offer goals on a golden plate to our opponents...

Match 18

Nairobi City Stars - KBS: 0 - 1
Scorer: Janeth (55’)
Saturday 14th December in Camp Toyoyo (Jericho, Nairobi)

You said that you would do it again and you did it again, well done guys! You beat the unbeaten leader, 2 wins in a row, congratulations!
Team work makes the dream work, keep it up!

Match 17

KBS - Talanta: 3 - 0
Scorer: Odunso (6’, 55’, 86’)
Saturday 7th December in Camp Toyoyo (Jericho, Nairobi)

At last! Well done guys!
You said u would do it this time, and u did it, very proud of u!
Very entertaining play and 3 Nice goals.

........ (to be filled soon)

Match 10

Coast Stima - KBS: 2 - 2
Scorer: Nino (17’) + billi (65’)
Monday 21th October in Mbaraki Sports club (Mombasa)

A good away point taken far away in Mombasa against courageous Coast Stima. We lead twice with 2 nice goals but again, lack of concentration in the very last minute made us drop more precious points. Our position in the standings is still not good cos we are not able to win at home... Keep it up guys!

Match 9

KBS - Bidco: 0 - 1
Scorer: -
Wednesday 16th October in Camp Toyoyo (Jericho, Nairobi)

After a defending approach in the 45 mins, we became far more offending in the 2nd half, creating many good chances until lack of concentration on a set piece at the very last minute killed us. So sad!

Match 8

Vihiga Utd - KBS: 2 - 0
Scorer: -
Friday 11th October in Mumias complex (Kakamega)

In other circumstances, we could have said that losing away against a former KPL team is not so bad but.... we cannot win at home as well, we don’t score and we need points, guys!

Match 7

KBS - Vihiga Bullets: 1 - 3
Scorer: Onduso (74’)
Saturday 5th October in Camp Toyoyo (Jericho, Nairobi)

Congratulations to the new comers Vihiga Bullets! Our determined opponents wanted to win more than us today and..... they won!
KBS - Vihiga Bullets : 1 - 3.
We have to digest this disappointing result and come back stronger. Yes we can!

Match 6

Shabana - KBS: 1 - 0
Scorer: -
Sunday 30th September in Gusii Stadium (Kisii)

Losing 1 nil away after playing 1 hour with only 10 players is not so bad. Now we have to work harder to take points at home and score more goals.

Match 5

Ushuru - KBS: 1 - 1
Scorer: Kevo (9’)
Monday 23th September 2019 at Ruaraka Stadium (Thika rd)

A good away point and another encouraging result.

Match 4

KBS - Administration Police: 0 - 1
Scorer: -
Wednesday 18th September 2019 at Camp Toyoyo (Nairobi)

So good to be back live on TV today but so sad that we were not able to stay on the winning path...

Match 3

St Joseph Youth - KBS: 0 - 2
Scorer: Nino (35’), Onduso (74’)
Friday 13th September 2019 at Afraha Stadium (Nakuru)

It’s so good to get our first win of the season!

Match 2

KBS - Modern Coast: 1 - 1
Scorer: Kevo (5’)
Saturday 7th September 2019 at Camp Toyoyo (Nairobi)

Not bad but not so good. We have good players but not yet a team. We will improve with time. Many chances from both sides. We could have won but we could have lost as well. So we have to accept this very first point of the new season in a positive way.
Among weak points, we need to be tougher on the ball + more organised in defense + more efficient in finishing then better results will come. Keep it up guys!

Match 1

Muranga Seals - KBS: 1 - 0
Scorer: -
Sunday 1st September 2019 at Thika Municipal Stadium

Not the start we could have hoped but we need to be a bit patient. The preseason preparation was very short and the team is still under construction. A lot of adjustments are needed and will surely be sources of thoughts among the coaches during the week. Stay focused!
