AFC Leopards striker Elvis Rupia is the Football Kenya Federation Premier League (FKF-PL) player of the month.

Rupia was on Friday named the player of the month for his exemplary performances in December at the club’s training ground at Gems Cambridge in Karen Nairobi.

The Ingwe danger man beat Kariobangi Sharks’ striker Eric Kapaito and KCB’s goalkeeper Joseph Okoth to bag the award which comes with a trophy and Sh50000.

The former Wazito FC striker began the season on a high note by netting six goals in four matches played in the month.

He scored the winner in Leopards’ 2-1 victory over Tusker on November 11, before netting all the two goals in Ingwe’s 2-0 win over newcomers Bidco United on December 6.

He wrapped up the month in style by bagging the season’s first hat trick in a dominant 3-0 win over Sofapaka on December 12.

However, Rupia did not find the net as Leopards shockingly lost to Western Stima in their last game of the month.

KCB‘s Okoth emerged second in the player of the month race due to his outstanding performance in between the sticks. He only conceded one goal – in their 2-1 win over Bandari on December 18.

Kapaito, the 2018 FKF-PL Most Valuable Player emerged third thanks to his four goals and two assists in four matches.

After 11 matches, Kapaito leads the top scorers chart with 12 goals, two more than second-placed Rupia.
