Samuel Onyango

Samuel Onyango has won the Gor Mahia player of the month award for the month of March following a glorious showing last month.

The midfielder was voted by the fans for his stellar show in March edging out former AFC Leopards man Austin Odhiambo and Ugandan import and former Sofapaka striker Peter Lwasa who are also in contention for the award.

โ€œSamuel Onyango is the player of the month (March) as voted by fans. Congratulations Sammy,โ€ Gor Mahia said in a statement on their social media accounts.

Two weeks ago, the club asked its fans to vote for their best player in the month of March via a text message.

โ€œVote for your best player of the month (March) by sending the name of any of the three below to 23333. Austin Odhiambo Peter Lwasa Samuel Onyango,โ€ Gor Mahia said.

Onyango now wins the award two months after missing out on the award for the month of January in which he was up against Boniface Omondi and Lwasa.

The award was then won by Omondi, Onyango coming a distant second while Lwasa came third on that day.

โ€œBoniface Omondi is the fans’ player of the month ( January ) How fans voted: Boniface Omondi: 88% Samuel Onyango: 8% Peter Lwasa: 4% Congratulation Boniface,โ€ Kโ€™Ogalo announced the results.
