Sofapaka sponsors, Betika, have rewarded Sofapaka head coach and two players with cash prizes for their exemplary performances this season.

Batoto Ba Mungu head coach John Baraza, striker Umaru Kasumba and goalkeeper Justin Ndikumana had a reason to smile after receiving Sh100,000 each from Betika.

Kasumba was earlier named the Sports Journalists Association of Kenya (SJAK) February player of the month due to his goal scoring heroics while Baraza and Ndikumana received the corresponding March awards and for that acclaim, the sponsors rewarded them.

“This is something really good from the sponsors to support us and award us at this time of the season. I know that this will pose a challenge to the other players to also work hard and get those awards because now we know that the sponsors will reward us as well. Overall, it will make us as a team improve,” head coach Baraza said.

“It is a great gesture and now everyone has to work hard. It is also good for the motivation of the players and I hope we will continue in this way and more players from Sofapaka will be awarded the monthly trophies,” said Kasumba.
