The nominees for the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League Player of the Month award for January have been announced with leading scorer Diawisie Taylor among the contenders for the second gong this season.
Daniel Lomotey (WAFA SC), Maxwell Nii Abbey Quaye (Great olympics) and Elmina Sharks’ James Bissue complete the 4-man shortlist.
The winner of the 2020/21 GPL NASCO Player of the Month for January award will be announced on Wednesday February 10, 2021.
The winner will receive a NASCO Television set and a personalized trophy.
Why they were nominated:
The leading marksman scored his 9th goal of the season in the epic clash between his side Karela FC and Medeama SC at CAM Park on match-day 11 of the season. Taylor is poised to continue his impressive scoring prowess and help his side maintain their lead on top of the league log. In the month of January, Taylor scored a total of five goals with a brace in the game against Berekum Chelsea and a goal each against Elmina Sharks and Medeama. He also assisted his teammates twice in the month as he won one MVP award.
Lomotey may not be in the GPL any longer after completing a move to Algerian side ES Sétif but the former WAFA forward left a mark in the league in the month of January. After scoring four goals in their match against four goals against Medeama, the prolific goalscorer also scored for the Academy side when they hosted Asante Kotoko on match-day 9. He also won the NASCO player of the match award in the game against Medeama.
