Head coach Benjamin Nyangweso has lauded winger Enosh Ochieng, after a fantastic season that saw him bag 20 goals in what will go down as his most successful Kenyan Premier League (KPL) campaign, the 2018/19 season.
Enosh netted a hat trick in the final match of the season as Ulinzi Stars spanked Mount Kenya United 4 – 0 at Afraha Stadium, to finish as the team and league’s best scorer for the season, attracting glowing praise from the coach.
His discipline, hard work, attention to detail and willingness to learn, the coach points out, were his key attributes in the season as he joins Steven Waruru and John Mark Makwata as Ulinzi players to have attained the feat.
“Enosh was on fire; by far the best goal poacher in the season and this feat is well deserved. He has worked hard and his discipline as a person and player has been on top. He listens and is ready to learn; we couldn’t have had a better man to win the Golden Boot.
“Congratulations to him because in this league it is not easy. I hope he keeps the focus as he advances in his career. The future is definitely bright for him,” the coach said.
In the 2018 season, Enosh scored in the opening game of the season but suffered a metatarsal injury, which limited him to just nine more appearances that season, and he went on to finish with six goals.
