The Kenya Premier League has today released the nominees for the 2018 SportPesa Premier League awards in twelve different categories.

Ugandan shot stopper Mathias Kigonya has been nominated in the category of the Golden glove award, also known as the best goalkeeper of the season for his heroics at Sofapaka FC last season.
Kigonya will face competition from Bandari’s Faruk Shikalo, Tusker’s Patrick Matasi, Kelvin Omondi of Sony Sugar FC, and Ezekiel Owade of AFC Leopards.
The Golden Glove winner will pocket Ksh 500,000, while the first and second runners up go home with Ksh 300,000 and Ksh 200,000 respectively.

The Cranes goalkeeper is the only Ugandan player nominated in the 12 categories shortlisted.
Kigonya ditched Sofapaka FC this month due to unclear circumstances and has already been linked with a transfer move to AFC Leopards.

The twelve categories include; MVP of the year, Golden Glove, Defender of the Year, Midfielder of the Year, Fairplay player of the year, Golden Boot, New Player of the year, Coach of the Year, team manager of the year, Most Improved Center Referee, Most Improved Assistant Referee and Fairplay Club of the Year.

The KPL Awards, also known as the KPL Footballer of the Year Awards (FOYA), refer to an awards ceremony held to honour association football players, coaches and officials participating in the Kenyan Premier League.

This year’s Awards gala will be held at the Kenya School of Government on Thursday 25th October.
