Kenyan Winger Clarke Oduor has been named Barnsley’s January player of the month after an exceptional month with the English champions club.
The 20-year old who can also play as a left-back was voted January’s best by club supporters. He amassed 41% of the total votes cast by the Super Reds supporters.
The youngster was born in Siaya County before his parents moved to the UK. He joined Leeds United at the age of 10 and in 2019 he ended his association with Leeds United by joining Barnsley where he has been a key player.
“…. It was Clarke Oduor who received the most votes after some good performances during January”.
“Getting 41% of the fans’ votes, Clarke has been a revelation since getting handed his first-team opportunity by Gerhard Struber,” read the statement from the club in part.
On his part, the youngster expressed his delight at bagging the accolade.
I’d like to say a big thank you to the fans for the votes. It’s nice to get such recognition and they’ve been great since I made my debut. It helps to have their support.
“We really appreciate their backing, especially through this tough period and we hope to start putting it right and climbing the table to safety.”
