" We have no allowances for players and we have always struggled to raise funds for transport and accommodation among other needs during our home and away matches,” Nyabinge revealed.

The former Kisumu Palos coach also said going by the huge budget of taking part in national super league the school and few alumni alone cannot manage to support and sustain the team fully hence need for the support from well-wishers and corporate companies from Kakamega town and beyond.

Commandos have nine matches to play and are currently facing relegation threat as they occupy the second last spot on the log with 18 points from 28 matches.
