Gor Mahia manager Dylan Kerr has been named the Kenyan Premier League coach for the month for June.

Kerr was a unanimous pick for the June gong after guiding his charges to five wins in five outings in the month.

He was nominated alongside Sofapaka’s John Baraza.

The Malta-born Englishman was thankful for the surprise award and heaped praises on his technical bench and players for the good run.

“Honestly when I came here I did not know that it was me getting this award. I have to say thank you to the technical staff who have been amazing during this period. They have helped me a great deal, that is why we are here,” the Briton said.

“My players too have been amazing, and I can’t take that away from them. No matter who is selected, they have done a brilliant job and that is why we are getting these results,’ Kerr said,” he added.

Gor started the month with a 4-0 drubbing over Wazito FC, then thrashed Nzoia Sugar 3-1 in Kisumu.

The run-away KPL champions then swept aside Ulinzi Stars 2-0 before blanking Posta Rangers 5-0. They ended the month with a 1-0 win over Sony Sugar.

“We respected every opponent we faced in the month of June and all I can say is that teamwork and dedication helped us grind the results. Despite taking part in many competitions and playing a match after every three days, we are happy to have won all our fixtures,” Kerr added.

For his troubles he took home a glittering trophy and a cash reward of Kshs 75k. This was Kerr’s second accolade as K’Ogalo coach, having picked his maiden award in September 2017.
