After seven years in the lower echelons of Uganda’s football including a heartbreaking Big league play-off finals loss in 2018, Kitara FC has finally sealed an Uganda premier league slot.
A 55th minute Brian Muluuli Mayanja strike against Kiboga young is all was required in the FUFA Big league play-off final at the FUFA Technical center, Njeru.
“Belief and teamwork are the reasons we have achieved. Problem though is we have limited recuperation because the ultimate test (Uganda premier league) starts in less than a month” said Kitara Coach Mark Twinamasiko.
Save for a first-half Musa Docca clearance off the line from a Yahaya Luuti attempt, Kiboga young offered close to nothing in a game that witnessed a slight downpour towards the end.
“Today was never our ‘day out’” is all Kiboga head coach Richard Makumbi could say at the end of proceedings.
Kitara joins Malaba Youth Development Association (MYDA) and Uganda Peoples Defense Forces (UPDF) from Uganda’s second tier to the 16-team elite league.
