Kenya Gor Mahia’s Omalla message to McKinstry: ‘Memories we made will never fade’

Gor Mahia striker Benson Omalla has praised outgoing coach Johnathan McKinstry saying he will never forget the memories they had made together at the FKF Premier League champions.

The Northern Irish tactician oversaw his final game with K’Ogalo – a 4-3 win against Bidco United – as the team was handed the trophy for winning a record 21st title on Sunday. While K’Ogalo were crowned, Omalla also won the Golden Boot award, notching 19 goals, the last two coming in the win against Bidco.

“What a long season it has been, and now it’s finally over. First and foremost, I want to express my gratitude to God for His love and constant support,” said Omalla. “I also want to give a big shout-out to my amazing coach. You’ve always believed in me and pushed me to be my best. Even though you’re leaving, the memories we’ve made will never fade. I wish you all the best in your new assignment. Next, a massive thank you to my teammates.

“We triumphed as a team, and I couldn’t have been the top scorer without your unwavering trust and support in front of the goal. To our incredible fans, thank you! Your endless support and encouragement motivated us to work harder and harder. Whether we won or lost, you were always there to lift us up.

“A special thanks to the Green Army for being our rock throughout the season. Lastly, a huge shout out to my competitors, Tito Okello and Makwatta. To my close competitors Tito Okello and Makwatta, you guys did well and you pushed me to really work hard. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.”
