    Kapaito does it again!

    The curtains for the 2020-21 top-flight season came to a close on Sunday with Tusker being crowned champions after topping the 18-team table but which player managed to secure the Golden Boot?

    Despite missing the last game of the season against Sofapaka owing to injury, Kapaito won the gong after managing 24 goals, in a season that saw him score two hat-tricks and also keep the top spot in the goal scorers’ chart for the better part of the season.

    The 25-year-old former FC Talanta forward won the gong in the 2018 season after managing 16 goals, meaning he bettered the performance by eight goals.

    The former Nzoia Sugar striker gave Kapaito a run for his money by the closing stages of the first-round matches but his form disappeared when his side AFC Leopards started to struggle in the top-flight.

    Despite scoring two braces and a hat-trick this season, the 26-year-old run out of gas in the second round of the league where he only managed two goals and could not match Kapaito.

    Juma was the star player for Sofapaka since moving from Gor Mahia at the start of the season, and despite playing behind the strikers, he has helped Batoto ba Mungu to vital wins with his goals.

    However, he could not keep pace with Kapaito as he was being deployed as an attacking midfielder, but for him to score 16 goals, he deserves to win the midfielder of the year award during the FKF Gala on September 11.

  5. Wadri William of Bandari FC vs Humprey Mieno of Tusker FC.
    Goal Kenya.

    William Wadri (Bandari) - 13

    The Ugandan forward had set a target of notching 15 goals or more when the season kicked off but he only managed to score 13 for Bandari.

    The 25-year-old, who was voted the best player for the month of February, could have surpassed the mark had he not sustained an injury that kept him out for five matches.

  6. DERRICK OTANGA of KCB celebebrates.
    Goal Kenya.

    Derrick Otanga (KCB) - 12

    Otanga joined the Bankers at the start of the season after a frustrating spell with Wazito FC but he managed to turn his career around with top-class displays which propelled him to join the list of the leading goalscorers.

    The superb display by the 24-year-old can be of great value for him and the Bankers when the new season kicks off on September 26.
