Industrious Kakamega Homeboyz midfielder Moses Mudavadi has been named the club’s February player of the month following his impressive stats in the three matches played.
Mudavadi scooped the inaugural monthly club award introduced in conjunction with shirt sponsors Mozzart Bet courtesy of the four assists he managed.
The loyal and long serving lieutenant skippered Homeboyz to bag seven points out of a possible nine on offer during the month.
Mudavadi who joined Homeboyz in 2012 clocked full time in all the three matches and won the nod from the technical bench to hoist the award ahead of Yema Mwamba, winger David Okoth and the fast-rising centre back Sylvester Owino.
Homeboyz began the month with 1-1 draw against Nzoia Sugar played at the Bukhungu Stadium on February 6 before easing past Mathare United in a 3-1 scoreline at the Kasarani Annex six days later.
Ababa Abeingo wrapped the month with a comfortable 3-1 home win over Bidco United on February 27.
