Striker John Bocco

Azam`s towing and talismanic striker John Bocco has won the Mainland premiership golden boot award after scoring 19 goals in 26 appearances.

Bocco has set up a new scoring record since the new format of the premiership was established during the 2008/9 to break previous records set by former Yanga and Simba strikers Boniface Ambani and Musa Mgosi, respectively.

The Azam striker who is the only player remaining out of the squad that led the team into the top flight berth promotion, has been inspirational to score crucial goals to his team.

The striker has ditched Tanzania’s national soccer team owing to spectators’ behaviour during international matches particularly those played at home.

Simba’s Ugandan striker Emmanuel Okwiri trails Bocco by seven goals while another Simba player Patrick Mafisango has eleven goals to his scoring kitty.

Yanga duo of Khamis Kiiza and Kenneth Assamoah have tied at ten goals apiece, same as Nsa Job of the relegated Villa Squad.

Last season’s golden boot award winner Mrisho Ngasa managed six goals during the season to stay one short of teammate Kipre Tcheche and Simba’s Patrick Mafisango.

Relegated Police Dodoma’s striker Juma Semsue remains as the only player of the top flight fleet to have scored a hat-trick when his team played against Moro United and won 5-2.
