Gombe
United coach, Austin Eguavoen and Dolphins goalkeeper and captain, Sunday
Rotimi, have emerged as Manager and Player of the League Bloggers Awards (LBA)
for the month of August.
The
two men posted impressive results with their teams in the ongoing Glo Premier
League season last month.
Eguavoen
edged out Kadiri Ikhana (Enyimba), Mohammed Baba Ganaru (Nasarawa United) and
Stanley Eguma (Dolphins) for the manager’s award.
Gombe
United, now coached by Eguavoen, got 12 points in August including an away win
at Bayelsa United. They also climbed out of the bottom four.
Enyimba
and Dolphins finished August unbeaten but could only muster 11 and nine points
respectively while Ganaru’s Nasarawa United amassed 10 points for the month
under review.
For
the player’s award, Rotimi had to contend with Osaguona Ighodaro (Enugu
Rangers), Ugwu Uwadiegwu (Enyimba), Emem Eduok (Dolphins), Julius Ubido
(Heartland), Austin Ekpoma (Gombe United), Olayinka Onaolapo (Nasarawa United)
and Nzube Anaezemba (Enyimba).
Dolphins
custodian, Rotimi, restored himself as one of the country’s safest hands by
keeping four clean sheets out of five games in August including a penalty save
at Sunshine Stars that helped his club secure a point and clean sheet.
Rotimi
conceded just a goal in five matches in August to be named LBA Player of
August.

Eguavoen
and Rotimi will be given their awards later in September by the LBA.
