The Scea AC: A Hundred Percent Home Grown

Branton Muga Otieno – Skipper- The Scea AC –

The Scea AC is the First Team ( made up of under 21s ) and came into being on 26th October, 2020 after a month and a half of deliberation. This followed a natural transition the first cohort of youngsters to join The Scea Development in 2015 – 2016 was making on and off the pitch. Under the guidance and development framework of The Scea SDP for three years plus a two year period of transition – 2018 -, The Scea Development beefed up the squad with a few players to form its inaugural First Team – The Scea AC. The first challenge for the newly composed team was to take part in The Sub County League of The Football Kenya Federation – FKF (2020- 2021 Season); for the first time.

Deliberation to form The Scea AC- The First Team meant we had to select among the youngsters within The Scea SDP who would fit the playing style, culture and values that The Scea Development wanted in all those to play and or represent the team at the highest level of competition. The players had / have to be of a different make and work or operate under specific principles to help and or enable them develop – compete- perform at the adult level. Only those deemed best fit were/ are retained and others released. Those retained continue/d to develop under a lot of competitive pressure on and off the pitch. This is to enable and help them perform.
