Old Boys expect challenge

SHARE

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.
