Two players and coach Pa-Modou Kah of Langford-based Pacific FC are up for end of season awards ahead of the Canadian Premier League Final.

Pa-Modou Kah has received a nomination for coach of the year after leading PFC to its first-ever final’s appearance. He’s up against his Forge FC counterpart Bobby Smyrniotis (nominated 2019, 2020) and Cavalry FC’s head coach Tommy Wheeldon Jr. (2019 winner).

Forward Terran Campbell is one of three candidates for CPL player of the year after finishing third in CPL’s goal scoring charts with 11 for the season and fourth in the assist chart with five. He is facing off against one of his competitors for the award, Forge FC midfielder Kyle Bekker, who is last year’s award winner, in the CPL final on Dec. 5. The other player nominated is Joao Morelli of HFX Wanderers, who leads the league in goals with 14.

Also up for an award is PFC midfielder Alessandro Hojabrpour, nominated for the under-21 player of the year. He’s up against Max Ferrari of York United FC and Victor Loturi, who plays for Cavalry FC.

The winners will be announced at a ceremony held in Toronto on Dec. 14.

The Golden Boot winner for the player who has scored the most goals in the season will be decided after the final game, with Pacific FC facing Forge FC in Hamilton.
