OWEN Kasule’s hard work is paying off with goal scoring form in the Mapinduzi Cup in Zanzibar. 

The 27yr old struck against Clove Stars on Saturday to take his tally to two goals in two matches.

This means Kasule is among the leading scorers in the championship that has been ongoing for the last five days. 

Coach Paul Nkata is delighted with the player’s impressive performance and has showered praise on the midfielder. 

Kasule was among the scorers on Saturday as URA trounced Clove stars 3-1, other two goals coming off the foot of Moses Feni.

Nkata said: “Kasule is playing well and scoring goals; he played well again on Saturday he has hit form at the moment and I pray that he continues with this up to the final. We also have to go back to fight in the second round of the FUFA Super League.”

URA is back in action today in a must-win game to confirm qualification to the quarter finals.
