Nasarawa United prolific goal-scorer, Victor Namo, claimed the top scorer’s prize for the 2012/13 Glo Premier League season with 18 goals.

The Jos-born footballer ended the league season two goals shy of his 20-goal target, but did well enough with his last strike on Matchday 38- which saw the ‘Solid Miners’ remain in the top flight for the forthcoming season.

Namo’s happiness knew no bound after the blast of the final whistle at the Lafia Township Stadium on Sunday, where they edged Heartland FC 1-0.

Reveling in his double achievement, he told “I am happy how it all ended for me and my team. I wanted to score 20 goals but I got 18. It was okay, I still won the top scorer award, which is a great achievement in Nigeria league.

“My greatest joy though was that my team Nasarawa United will remain in the Premier League. I am so happy we achieved that.”

With Kwara United held to a draw by Akwa United in Lokoja, the Lafia-based outfit needed a win to escape relegation and that they got.

20 goals, the league’s all-time record held by Jude Aneke, playing for Kaduna United in the 2010/11 season. A benchmark yet to be equaled, better still surpassed.

Warri Wolves frontman Oghenekaro Etebo finished second with 16 goals, while the duo of Akwa United’s Mfon Udoh and Kano Pillars’ Rabiu Ali finished joint third-placed scorers with 15 goals each.

Namo’s feat accounted for a slight improvement from last season’s goal-scoring prowess of Niger Tornadoes Sibi Gwar with 17 goals.
