Sony Sugar, who played four games that month, collected the most points in July after beating Sofapaka 2-0, Nzoia Sugar 2-0 and Mathare United 2-0 but fell to AFC Leopards 1-0. Bandari, on the other hand played one match less in July winning two games and drawing one.“I’m very thankful to God, to my players and team management for the good work that has culminated in this award. It has taken a lot of hard work and sacrifice to reach here. When I took up this job it seemed impossible to revive the club. It was a huge risk, but I was confident in my ability and moving from 18th to 8th on the table is testament,” Odhiambo said.Sony Sugar head coach Patrick Odhiambo with his players.

Leadership was lacking and I had to sign up one or two players to give the rest direction. Fortunately, everything went well and players responded positively,” Odhiambo notedHis focus is to win the rest of his league games and finish in the highest possible position.“I’ve got phenomenal players in the likes of Agwanda Enoch and the rest who have played key roles in our rise and hope we continue on our form,” Odhiambo added.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
