Poor goalkeeping + bad luck = fail

Onyango is known as "Jerry Jagoal" among Gor Mahia fans.

Club career

After graduating from Kamukunji High School in Nairobi, Onyango began his professional career at K.R.A. in 2006, who at the time were competing in the now defunct Nationwide League, before joining Gor Mahia two years later. He has been K'Ogalo's first-choice keeper since the beginning of the 2009 season, after Jacktone Odhiambo left the club for Ulinzi Stars. He captained the side to their first league title in 18 years in 2013.

International career

Onyango had received several call-ups to the Kenya national team since early 2011, but had to wait until 9 July 2013 to make his international debut when he started in his nation's 2013 COSAFA Cup match against Swaziland. He kept a clean sheet to help his side to a 2–0 victory.

Onyango was named in the squad that was to take part in the 2013 CECAFA Cup on home soil, but did not play a single game as he watched his side clinch their 6th title from the sidelines.
