The clinic that is going down at the Kenya School of Monetary Stidies is meant for talent identification.

“This is an exciting opportunity. We are here to look at the boys and impact some knowledge in them on how to play the Southampton way. At the end we hope what we say to them will help them develop into quality players and hardworking lads,” Maye said
