The stars of Harambee promise to rise from a disappointing show in Cecafa

The poor performance of Harambee Starlets in the recently concluded Women's Championship Cecafa 2018 will act as a wake-up call, says coach David Ouma.

Kenya had a disastrous start in the week-long tournament in Rwanda after finishing just above the bottom.

This was a great contrast to his 2016 show in Uganda, where Starlets retired in the final hurdle, after falling to eventual winners, Tanzania in the final.

Kenya finished fourth, ahead of Rwanda who came last in the five-nation championship.

Ouma qualified the result as & # 39; diisapointing & # 39; but he promised to take up the lessons as they went.

"We are disappointed because we did not get the results we expected despite giving a good account of ourselves.

" Looking ahead, we will review the tournament and take advantage of the experience, "said the coach after flying with the squad on Saturday night.

Kenya won a match, tied one and lost two, finishing with behind Ethiopia, Uganda and Tanzania, who successfully defended the title having won the 2016 edition in Uganda. [19659009]
