EFL Championship team Hull City have wrapped up their tour of Kenya by visiting several community projects in Nairobi.


Manager Nigel Adkins and his side will return to England today [Wednesday] but spent some time on Tuesday donating kit and equipment.


A total of 25 junior teams in Kibera received playing strips as part of the Kits For Africa campaign, while local clubs Vapour FC and Kangemi Patriots had a training session led by first team coach Tony Pennock. City’s medical team also delivered a workshop for local coaches and officials.


“We’ve met lovely, genuine people and thank you for sharing the experience,” said Adkins. “We want to share, give back and we want to help. Football is a universal language. It was a humbling experience.”


City have been in Kenya due to a partnership with club sponsors Sports Pesa, a betting firm based in Nairobi.


The tour included a match against Kenyan champions Gor Mahia in front of a big crowd, which the Tigers won on post-match penalties this past Sunday.
