Vision FC’s maiden Fans Player of the Month nominees for January have been announced, with four players in the running for the award.
The quartet contesting for the accolade sponsored by ‘THE OWUSU PROJECT’ (headline sponsor of the club) is Abraham Laryea, who is currently the club’s top scorer in all competitions, our most consistent defender this month Mohammed Ali, youngster Nanakwasi Arthur and defenders nightmare Emmanuel Paga.
After a month in which we kept two clean sheets against Accra Lions and one against Krystal Palace FC, goalkeeper Anaba Kamil and deputy skipper Abednego Ntow narrowly missed the cut as the jury/panel consisting of the Technical Team and Management unanimously nominated the four as the most impressive players in the month.
Read our summaries of the four players involved in the poll below, and then cast your vote…
ABRAHAM LARYEA – 4 appearances, 3 goals
Currently our top scorer thus far, the midfielder has been in good shape as his first two goals from the spot secured two straight wins on matchday one and two. He once again, opened the scoring in our two-nil win over Accra Lions in the MTN FA Cup preliminary round last week.
EMMANUEL PAGA – 4 appearances, 1 assist
While he may not have been able to score yet, Paga still caught the eye with his blistering forward runs and desire to take on defenders, particularly in his Vision debut against Accra Lions on matchday one, when he helped the Eewo boys winning the penalty that was converted to the eventual match-winner.
The pacey attacker continued his impressive form to the remaining three matches being a torn in the flesh of the opposition defenders.
NANAKWASI ARTHUR – 4 appearances, 1 assist
Also, an attacker to beat, Arthur has been influential in attack with his forward runs and superb dribbling display taking on defenders. His fantastic display against Krystal Palace and most recently, Accra Lions in the FA Cup winning a penalty after beating his marker caught the eye of everyone at the match center. He registered no goal but with an assist from the penalty won against Accra Lions.
MOHAMMED ALI – 4 appearances
Having won the Division One League MotM on matchday one, Ali becomes the only defender to make the grade for the maiden ‘FANS PLAYER OF THE MONTH’ contest. The center-back has been in superb form commanding his defensive line and putting up some good defensive displays.
