KENYAN international Jesse Were was the biggest winner at Zesco United’s annual awards gala at Mukuba Hotel in Ndola.
And CHAN debutant Lazarus Kambole was voted the team’s most improved player of the year.
Were, who scored 23 goals in the 2017 season, was crowned top scorer and footballer of the year while his strike partner Lazarus Kambole was named the club’s most improved and most valuable player.
Both strikers were instrumental in Zesco’s winning the Super League this season, as well as the Charity Shield.
The most disciplined player award went to Ivorian Ben Banh while the fans’ player of the year award went to Kondwani Mtonga.
Chipolopolo defender Fackson Kapumbu’s performance was rewarded with the most consistent player award while the chairman’s award went to assistant coach Tenant Chembo for guiding Zesco to their sixth Super League crown.
