“It is with great sorrow that we have lost our goalkeeper Vinny this morning. We had hopes that he was getting better and had plans to visit him as a team after our Saturday morning practice, may the good lord rest his soul in peace,” said the statement.
Vinny who was born on 2nd October 1999 collided with an opponent striker during a friendly match at Camp Toyoyo on Wednesday morning as Hakati fc tied 3-3 with Eastlanders fc.
The match had to be stopped when Vincent Ochieng lost consciousness and was rushed to the nearby Jamaa Hospital in Uhuru estate.
“He suffered a concussion according to doctors, but when we got there he was not responding. A friend doctor quickly advised us to take him to KNH because they had better facilities there to handle such cases. He responded well to medicine after he was diagnosed with a fracture on his left jaw and that gave us hope atleast,” a dejected Hakati fc head Coach Stanley ‘samco’ Achima said
