Players from reigning Castle Premier Soccer League Champions Caps United went on strike over outstanding bonuses. The players refused to train all week, starting from Thursday last week citing the fact that they were owed allowances from last season’s two games as well as the bonuses for the champions league qualification.
Players who spoke to NewsDay said:

We are owed $800 each as winning bonuses for the last two matches of the season. We resolved not to train until that has been resolved
They promised to give us $500 for each stage we pass, so they owe us $1 000 for the games against Lioli and TP Mazembe. We are not talking about the 30% of the $550 000 because we know that will come later in the year. We decided to embark on a sit-in so that the management could come and address us.
However, the players seem to have been appeased, for the moment, after they were given verbal promises that they were going to receive their salaries soon.
