Just into his first season in the Kenya Premier League (KPL), former SC Villa captain Anthony ‘Ekaliana’ Ndolo has been voted the league Most Valuable Player (MVP) for the 2014 season.

Ndolo who joined Sofapaka FC at the start of the year from Uganda’s champions KCC FC beat Cranes and Gor Mahia midfielder Geoffrey ‘Baba’ Kizito, Ulinzi’s Stephen Wururu and Tusker’s Brian Osumba to the gong.

Kizito was tipped by many pundits to claim the award but it was Ndolo who led Sam Timbe’s side to second place on the log scoring 9 goals from midfield who truly deserved it.

He joins Jacob Keli (2013), Daniel ‘Mzee’ Sserunkuma (2012), Kevin Kimani (2011), George ‘Blackberry’ Odhiambo (2010), John Baraza (2009) and Francis Ouma (2008) on the list of former winners.

On the same night, Ndolo was also voted the best midfielder thus he bagged two awards.
On a Ugandan point of view, Sofapaka coach Sam Timbe was runners up in season’s best manager behind Chemelil’s Mike Mururi while Daniel ‘Mzee’ Sserunkuma in absentia won the golden boot.
The diminutive Gor Mahia FC striker netted 16 league goals in the season.
