Resolution Insurance has rewarded Impala Boks with Sh750,000 championships bonus for successfully retaining the 2017 Eric Shirley Shield (ESS) for the third successive time.

The youthful Impala clinched the 2015 and 2016 titles before beating KCB II 13-12 in last month's final at the USIU Grounds.

The insurance firm also presented the Impala teams with their new kits for the upcoming season. "We Resolution Insurance are ecstatic over the impressive Boks' victory in the Eric Shirley Shield.

We are proud to be associated with such a skilled, disciplined and talented team," said Peter Nduati, CEO Resolution Insurance, during Saturday's ceremony at Impala Club. [Rodgers Eshitemi]
