She was also on the scoresheet as they laid their hands on a record league title.

Harambee Starlets forward Esse Akida has bragged after helping her Greek side AC PAOK lift a record 18th league title.

Akida scored twice as PAOK saw off OFI Crete on Saturday and was happy with how their season came to an end.

"Finishing the season with a brace in our 3-1 win is the way I wanted to end the campaign.

"Its been real PAOKARA," the former Thika Queens star celebrated after ending the season on a high.

The last season’s golden boot award in the Panelinio Protathlima [Greece Women’s top-flight league] celebrated how her season turned out.

"Cooked teams again this season, walked like a champion, and capped it off with a trophy," the former Spedag FC forward posted on her social media pages.

The Kenyan starlet extended her contract with PAOK in July last year and has crowned the season with an exemplary performance.

PAOK defended the title as they won their record 18. The side has been very dominant in the league, as they emerged champions in the 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021 seasons as well.

Akida’s side also holds the record for most trophies in the Greek Women’s Cup, as their tally stands at six.

With Akida turning out to be a key asset for them, PAOK are expected to keep her beyond the summer.
