Old Boys expect challenge


Old Boys will look to defend the Citizens Shield against Excelsior at the Whitestone Contracting Stadium in tomorrow’s final.

Kilifi Fangupo’s side will be gunning for a fifth successive shield triumph and has been the dominant side throughout the season.

The shield holder won 12 of its 15 round-robin fixtures, losing just twice, to Kurow 20-12 last month and Excelsior 30-24 when the sides last met on July 4.
