Ugandan goalkeeper Mathias Kigonya is delighted at his nomination in the inaugural Sports Journalists Association of Kenya (SJAK) awards.
The Sofapaka goalkeeper’s efforts came in handy as he helped his side finish second in the Kenya Premier League behind winners Gor Mahia.
“Personally I can say I had a good season and I’m definitely happy to have been nominated,” he told Soka.
“As a team we had targets that we unfortunately failed to achieve but we improved a lot, looking at where we finished the other season,” he added.
Kigonya will have to beat Gor Mahia’s Boniface Oluoch, Posta Rangers’ Patrick Matasi, Kariobangi Sharks’ Jeff Oyemba and David Juma of Kakamega Homeboyz.
The awards are slated for December 18, 2017.
