LOCAL sides have blamed the mother body, Uganda Hockey Association (UHA) for their poor performance at the just concluded Africa Cup of Club Championships in Kampala.
Uganda, hosting what was to be the 2013 edition, entered two men’s and a women’s team but all failed to win a medal.
Uganda’s only hope for a bronze was in the hands of the Weatherhead women but were also thumped 7-0 by Ghana Revenue Authority in the fight for third place at Lugogo over the weekend.
But team managers and skippers attributed their poor show to unfitness due to limited preparation time.
“We were informed about the tournament in December. You don’t expect players to be called from the festive holidays to come and train,” Weatherhead skipper Aisha Kagere noted.
