Tusker won their 12th league title after a consistent campaign and their goalkeeper Emery Mvuyekure was among their best players
Who stood out?
Goal ranks the custodians who kept the most clean sheets in the just-concluded Football Kenya Federation Premier League.
James Saruni – Ulinzi Stars
The experienced custodian played a vital role in helping the Soldiers turn around their season after their initial struggles. The Kenya international managed to keep 12 clean sheets as the Nakuru-based charges finished the campaign in 10th position with 44 points.
Joseph Okoth – KCB
Okoth has been outstanding for the Zedekiah Otieno-led charges this season. His 12 clean sheets ensured the Nairobi-based team finished second on the table, their best in the club’s history.
Justin Ndikumana – Bandari
The Burundi international came to the Dockers’ rescue when things were falling apart. In the tightest of situations, he stood tall, and at the end of the campaign, he managed to record 11 clean sheets and helped the Mombasa-based side to a third-place finish.
Steve Njunge – Nairobi City Stars
Was at his best for the promoted side throughout the season. Despite the inexperience of some players in the FKF Premier League, the ex-Wazito custodian bailed them out with his 11 clean sheets as Simba wa Nairobi finished seventh with 45 points.
Benjamin Ochan – AFC Leopards
It has been an inconsistent season for the Ugandan on and off the pitch. He missed several matches owing to injury and contractual issues but still showed his class by keeping 10 clean sheets to inspire Ingwe to a fourth-place finish in the concluded campaign.
Emery Mvuyekure – Tusker FC
Mvuyekure exchanged the position with Robert Mboya and Michael Wanjala in goal. But he kept the most clean sheets at the club, 10, as the Robert Matano-led team secured the league title, their 12th in history.
