UOE Trojans have parted ways with their coach, Shadon Munoko ahead of the 2023/24 season scheduled to commence on November 25 2023.

Munoko played a pivotal role in the Trojans’ success and led them to a 7th-place finish in the 2022/23 season after joining the Eldoret-based side towards the end of the season.

He has set his sights on a new challenge with the newly established Project 61 Rugby Club, slated to compete in the Rift Valley KRU nationwide league.

Speaking exclusively to Scrummage Africa, Munoko expressed his gratitude for the opportunity and looked forward to the fresh start, saying, “I thank God for the new opportunity; it’s a new challenge we embrace. With God, it’s going to be easy.”

” For UOE, I thank them for giving me my first coaching job. I wish them well this season and seasons to come. I learned a lot from them, and we won almost everything with them,” he offered.


Munoko led UOE to win the overall division two 7s title in the just concluded 2023 National sevens circuit.

The decision to join Project 61 Rugby Club reflects Munoko’s eagerness to take on a new challenge and contribute to the development of a budding team. The youthful tactician stands out as one of the most decorated players in the country having won all the major titles including two back-to-back Kenya Cups with KCB in the 2018/19 and 2019/20 seasons.

Munoko who is a Level 1 coaching holder played for Mean Machine, KCB and Ugandan Side Hearthens RFC.

The formation of Project 61 Rugby Club adds an exciting element to the national rugby landscape, with fans eagerly anticipating their debut in the nationwide league.
