Ulinzi to award star players



Ulinzi Stars will reward their best players during the 2012 season at an awards ceremony at Midlands Hotel in Nakuru on Friday.

Speaking to the club’s official website, chairman Lt. Col. JS Mwinyikai said that the event is meant to motivate the team ahead of the new campaign.

“Though we did not perform to our level best last year, there are individual players who fought and gave their all for the team. Such is the kind we want to award on Friday,” he said.

“This is a way of motivating them to work harder while also challenging the rest to up their efforts and ensure they get to be awarded next year.”

In this year’s gala event, fans will be involved in the selection process of the best players in seven different categories by voting through the team’s official Facebook and Twitter pages.

However, their votes will not determine the final result but will be considered by the management when handing out accolades.

Last year, Kenya international defender James Mulinge Ndetto was named the best player, with captain Geoffrey Kokoyo winning the defender award, and Jacktone Odhiambo the goalkeeper prize.

Chester Okoyo walked away with the best midfielder award; Lawrence Owino was honoured for being the most disciplined player, while Antony Nderitu and Hussein Mohammed shared the chairman’s accolade.

The 2011 Kenyan Premier League top scorer Stephen Waruru won the golden boot. Ulinzi finished sixth on the log in the 2012 season with 45 points out of 30 matches.
