After leaving Sharks, striker Felix Oluoch joins Bandari.

Felix Oluoch, a hot-shot striker, says he wants to help his new team Bandari FC win the 2022/23 Football Kenya Federation Premier League (FKF-PL) and be the top scorer.

The former Chemelil Sugar and Nzoia Sugar player signed a three-year contract with the Dockers. On Monday, he announced his departure from the Kariobangi Sharks via Twitter.

"I'm glad to be here" (Bandari). I spoke with the coach (Anthony Kimani) about his plans for this team, which are similar to mine. We both want to win the championship, and I believe this is the best environment for us to do so. "After coming close last season, I am here to bring the title and golden boots," Oluoch remarked.

He joined Sharks at the start of the 2021/22 FKF-PL season after scoring 14 goals for the now-promoted Administration Police Service (APS) Bomet.

He was an instant hit in the top flight league, scoring five goals in their first five games of the season, and was thus regarded as the ideal replacement for 2020/21 FKF-PL top scorer Eric Kapaito.

Kapaito left Sharks for Ethiopia Premier League side Abra Minch City after winning the Golden Boot with 24 goals.

Oluoch's season with the Sharks was marred by injuries, which caused him to miss 13 games.

His 12 goals ranked third in the league, trailing only Kenya Police's Cliffton Miheso (15 goals) and KCB's Derrick Otanga (16 goals).

In a previous interview, Otanga confessed that if the former APS Bomet player had been available throughout the season, he would have beaten him to the award.

Oluoch offered Sharks a beautiful tribute.

"It's difficult to say goodbye. It was an honor to wear this particular jersey. We've been through ups and downs together, and perhaps now is the time to try something new. Sharks, Ahsante sana (Thank you very much)," the striker stated on his official Twitter account.

"Passionate goal poacher Felix Oluoch is bidding goodbye to the club," the Sharks said on their official Twitter account. He has appeared 24 matches and scored 12 goals since arriving in 2021. Thank you, and best wishes for your next adventure."

After Brian Olang'o, Brandon Obiero, Doglas Mokaya, Boniface Onyango, Patilah Omoto, Ziyadi Kiwanuki, Eric Mmata, and Enock Wanyama, he became the latest player to leave coach William Muluya's side during this transfer season.

Last season, the Sharks finished 11th with 41 points. Bandari have yet to win the FKF-PL, finishing fourth with 54 points.The dockers also signed two-year contracts with Kenya internationals Omar Somobwana and Mohamed Abeid.

Wilberforce Lugogo and Hamid Mohammed have both been recalled by Bandari after a year-long loan from Sofapaka.

Midfielders Collins Agade (free agent) and Danson Namasaka have left for KCB.
