Goalkeeper, Jerry “Jagoal” Onyango has been voted as team captain for the 2013 season. Jerim has been the captain since 2011 with former captain, left full back Julius Owino left the team after a long career with the club.

Ther election took place amongst the players. Other contestants were Moses Odhiambo, Anthony Akumu and Kevin Omondi. Of these, Onyango was the most logical choice. He has the best leadership abilities of the current group pf players and is one of the longest serving players.

Onyango had a good season in 2012 that saw him regain his place in the national team after a shaky 2011 season that saw many fans calling for his replacement.

He thanked his team-mates for the faith they bestowed on him. “Leadership is a great and challenging task but and I also thank them for the co-operation they have always accorded me. I am looking forward to the same once more and hopefully we will work together to overcome the challenges ahead. It makes me really happy and proud to be captain – it’s a real honour, said Onyango to supersport.com

Onyango has a long way to go however before he can scale the heights of other legendary and inspirational Gor Mahia skippers like Allan Thigo, Peter Otieno “Bassanga” and Austin Oduor, all of whom lifted multiple trophies. Fans will be hoping that Onyango will be the one to lead Kogalo back to the promised land after a 17 year hiatus.

    Jagoal deserves to be the captain of Gor bcos of all the reasons listed above, more importantly getting a vote of confidence from teamates, however i saw an article where the writer argued that Jeri d’snt deserve since he had xpressd an interest 2join rivals Ingwe n so he questioned his comitment,what is ur take on that my semejis?

    MY, MY SOME FOOD FOR THOUGHT FOR THE EXECUTIVE COMMUNITY- DIDN’T KNOW SOFAPAKA WERE GETTING SO MUCH MORE SPONSORSHIP THAN OUR BELOVED K’GALO.

    From Michezoafrika:

    Blue Triangle increases Sofapaka sponsorship
    Updated on 20/02/13 | By TIMOTHY OLOBULU
    This year, Sofapaka’s Chief Sponsors East African Portland Cement through their Blue Triangle brand will increase their sponsorship to the team by three million shillings. This was revealed on Wednesday evening when the sponsors hosted the players at a dinner function in Nairobi.

    Sofapaka will get 33 Million shillings from the cement manufacturing firm as their sponsorship for the 2013 season. This being an increase from the 30 Million shillings in a four year sponsorship partnership that began in 2009. …. contd

    @ Bill Wabz that writer who posted his blog regarding “Jagoal” at FUTAA.COM just did not get it. Personally i see nothing wrong since it is normal in any business venture and switching clubs or career is part of the game. RVP switched from the Gunners to to the Red Devils irrespective of his captaincy responsibility and perennial rivalry between the two clubs.

    Congrats Jerry Jagoal.

    @4 Oduor12 – during last AGL, one person (I can’t remember the name) promised to link us with the sponsorship deal of upto a tune of 200 million. What happened?
