Gor Mahia coach Dylan Kerr has dedicated the KPL Award to his players and backroom staff.

The Briton scooped the award for June on Tuesday after going unbeaten that month, winning all the five games played scoring fifteen goals, and conceding only one to collect all the 15 points. He was awarded a trophy and Sh75, 000 from Fidelity Insurance.

Kerr, who was caught by surprise, acknowledged the brilliant work being done by his backroom staff and his players in general. “Honestly when I came here I did not know that it was me getting this award.

“I have to say thank you to the technical staff who have been amazing during this period. They have helped me a great deal, that is why we are here. My players too have been amazing and I can’t take that away from them.

“No matter, who is selected, they have done a brilliant job and that is why we are getting these results.”

Gor Mahia started the month with a 4-0 drubbing over Wazito FC, then thrashed Nzoia Sugar 3-1 in Kisumu. They then swept aside Ulinzi Stars 2-0 before blanking Posta Rangers 5-0. They ended the month with a 1-0 win over Sony Sugar.

“We respected every opponent we faced in the month of June and all I can say is that teamwork and dedication helped us grind the results. Despite taking part in many competitions and playing a match every three days, we are happy to have won all our fixtures.”

This is Kerr’s second accolade as K’Ogalo coach, having picked his maiden award in September 2017. In that month.
