Ex-Sierra Leone coach McKinstry guides Gor Mahia to 20th title

Ex-Sierra Leone head coach Jonathan McKinstry says it was a special moment for the newly crowned Kenya Champions Gor Mahia FC. 

Coach McKinstry, a UEFA Pro Coach and professional football manager, signed with the Kenya side in July 2022 – on his first attempt, the Irish man has guided Kenya’s most decorated club to lift their 20th title.

Gor Mahia on Sunday rallied from a goal down to thrash Nairobi City Stars 4-1 at Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani, to secure a record-extending 20th league title.

McKinstry took to Twitter to express his delight. “A special day for the Gor Mahia FC family as we sealed the Kenya Premier League title in style,” he proudly tweeted.

Sierra Leone ranked 50th in FIFA World Rankings and 7th in Africa – their highest ever on 14 Aug 2014 when the Irishman was in charge.

Mckinstry was speaking after he was appointed in July last year.

“The opportunity to lead Gor Mahia is something that has interested me for several years ever since I first visited the club in 2016 whilst Head Coach of Rwanda. The stature of the club, combined with its significant and passionate fanbase place them as one of the leading clubs on the continent. To be trusted with the responsibility of guiding them back to success is a task that I relish.”
