Nzoia Sugar Centre back Brian Otieno has been named the Best Player of the Month for March by Sports Journalists Association of Kenya.

The best player award was given in partnership with KPL sponsors SportPesa in an event that was held on Tuesday April 25 at Sudi stadium, Bungoma County.

The young player managed to secure the award after collecting 17 points, three above his closest rival Godfrey Walusimbi and six above the third placed Kenneth Muguna both of whom are Gor Mahia players.

Brian opened the league campaign with two goals against Kenya Premier League Champions Tuker FC as the Sugarmen won 5-2 at Afraha Stadium.
