Up until that game, Njunge had tended to goal 49 times for Simba wa Nairobi across the last three Premier League seasons.
In hitting the rare milestone, Njunge said;
“I give thanks for reaching the magical 50. It has not been easy and I attribute it all to hard work,”
“I also wish to thank my coaches for believing and giving me the chance to feature for the club across the last three seasons,”
“The milestone aside, I want to stay focused and post new highs with the club.” added Njunge
The Nzoia game was the 13th for Njunge this season who has so far clocked 1,095 minutes.
The current number of games is an improvement from the four he earned from an injury-hit last season.
In the 2020-21 premier league season, Njunge clocked all minutes available after featuring in all 33 games. He registered eleven clean sheets to be named the joint runners-up keeper of that season.
