DURING their heydays Shilla Omuriwe was a prolific libero for KAVC women while Tonny Lakony spurred the KAVC men to great heights as a setter. 

They helped their respective KAVC sides to the numerous trophies which made the club a household name until the early 2000s. 

Today, the two KAVC diehards will clash as coaches against each other and Lakony has promised to use KAVC principles against the club. 

“I can’t hide the fact that I am KAVC. But when we were bred at the club, I was told anyone across the net is an opponent and they deserve no sympathy. I will use the same against them because it is time to amass points,” Lakony said.

His counterpart Omuriwe refused to comment on the encounter but as it stands she is a more exposed coach than Lakony having played and later trained as a tactician with University of Bridgeport in USA for years.

Both coaches hold level two coaching licenses and what should separate them is how they will display practical tactics.

Last year both sides won each of the two legs in the league but KAVC hold a slight advantage over Nkumba because they have maintained a number of their players while the opponents are building a fresh squad.

Lakony will be forced to play the match if his setter Chrispus Kambere fails a late fitness test today following an ankle injury he suffered last month.

Nkumba will need to go an extra mile to avoid a defeat by denying KAVC centre players Saviour Atama and Eric Ogwang the limelight.
