Black Rhinos coach Stanford ‘Stix’ Mutizwa has won the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League coach of the month award for May.

His defender at Rhinos Sydney Linyama walked away with the player of the month accolade, also for May.

Mutizwa has guided his team to second position of the log standings with 12 matches played so far. While the Army side have surprised many observers with their consistent impressive league form that has seen them become surprise title challengers, the judging panel singled out Coach for having kept his player’s feet on the ground and remaining focused during this period.

The Players and Coach of the Month awards were selected by a panel of judges made up of members of the broadcast media and football analysts and was convened by renowned local coach Farouk Khan.
