Farouk Shikhalo has kept 13 clean sheets in his debut season at Bandari FC with the goalkeeper angling at his first major individual accolade come the end of the season.
The former Muhoroni Youth shot-stopper who had a silent stint at Posta Rangers believes Bandari has been a good ground for his growth as a goalkeeper and was determined to help his team finish in their best ever position in the league this season.
“It’s never easy for a goalkeeper and you have to depend on your defence most often for these clean sheets so much credit should go to them. I try to do my best when representing the colours of my team and my ambition is to win this year’s golden glove. I can’t do it without the team’s help and so I have to ensure that I help the team achieve their aims first in games before thinking of myself,” Shikhalo told Soka.
The keeper who will be under the second coach this season after the arrival of Bernard Mwalala from Nzoia Sugar following the departure of coach Ken Odhiambo had kind words for both coaches and believes that they have what it takes to stop AFC Leopards in their next league tie.
