“So far this has been my biggest achievement. But I want to encourage the organizers to keep on rewarding excellence and recognizing the best achievers as it keeps the motivation of the players up,” Okello added.

The awards were under serious struggle initially after it had been reported that the ruling federation didn’t want to have other awards being organized seeing as the federation had also planned to have their own awards that have been on for the last 5 years.

Football 256 however, managed to convince the federation to have them continue with organizing their awards and hence Allan Okello came out as the eventual winner.

The winner was declared after the organizers put out a list of players and asked the general public to cast their votes on the players. The fans chose KCCA FC’s Allan Okello as their stand out player for his incredible contributions with club and his performances with the national team during the CHAN Qualifiers.
