ZPC Kariba defender Dennis Dauda is tipped to win the Castle Lager Footballer of the Year Award at the 2014 Soccer Stars banquet to be held in Harare on Friday.

Dauda had one of his best seasons which saw ZPC Kariba finishing second to eventual champions Dynamos and has emerged as favourite to grab the big one — the Castle Lager Footballer of the Year.

Sports writers, Premier Soccer League (PSL) coaches and their captains, three weeks ago, selected the best eleven players of the just-ended season from which the top three will be drawn.

The season’s best coach and referee as well as Rookie of the Year will also be announced on the banquet night.

Dauda hails from Mbizo 6 in Kwekwe and, after leaving Lancashire Steel at the beginning of 2009, he appeared lost in the Division One wilderness turning out for DSTV Rangers and then ZPC Kariba whom he helped gain promotion into the PSL last season.

He remains modest however, even in his finest moment.

“Many people are saying I had a very good season and I deserve to be Soccer Star of the Year but I will be surprised honestly if I win the award.

“It's not something that had crossed my mind. I was just playing my normal game," said the player.
