Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr was on Tuesday feted as the  Fidelity Insurance Coach of the Month for June.

Kerr was unanimously voted by the Sports Journalists Association of Kenya (SJAK) football commission after going unbeaten that month, winning all the five games played scoring 15 goals, and conceding only one to collect all the 15 points. He was awarded a trophy and Ksh. 75,000 from Fidelity Insurance.

Kerr who was caught by surprise acknowledged the brilliant work being done by his backroom staff and his players.

“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 that have been amazing during this period. They have helped me a great deal, that is why we are here.

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

Gor started the month with a 4-0 drubbing over Wazito FC, then thrashed Nzoia Sugar 3-1 in Kisumu. They 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 every three days, we are happy to have won all our fixtures,”he added.

Kerr was nominated alongside Sofapaka tactician John Baraza but the K’Ogalo coach triumphed in a landslide vote carried out by football writers. His team is currently top of the log with 52 points from 20 matches.

Gor Mahia has been unstoppable this season and remains the only unbeaten side in the league despite taking part in four competitions. Currently Kerr is preparing the boys for a continental assignment where they are scheduled to play Young Africans in Dar es Salaam. They are also active in the FKF Shield and as it seems, they are in for a quadruple.

This is Kerr’s second accolade as K’Ogalo coach, having picked his maiden award in September 2017.
