Last Wednesday, a local Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) Air Force team played a British Army Training Unit Kenya (BATUK) squad in a nail biting game of football which ended in honours even with two goals apiece.
This was the second game with the KDF in the last weeks as BATUK continue to work with their Kenyan partners.
The game began with BATUK FC dominating the ball and the chances. Their strong start was rewarded after 25 minutes when LCpl Burns was able to beat the offside trap before taking the ball around the keeper and calmly driving the ball home. However it didn’t take long for the KDF Air Force to draw level.
In the second half the KDF Air Force dominated the early exchanges and a superb long range effort saw the KDF take the lead.
BATUK FC where able to rally for the last 20 mins and in a strong counterattack, Sgt Wakerley’s defence splitting pass enabled LCpl Scott to score at the second attempt, with help from both posts.
