CHARITY are looking forward to another season of unknown potential.

The Wanderers are looking for ways to survive the storm threatening to blow them under.

When the two meet today at Lugogo in the Uganda Cricket Association National League, Charity are likely to walk away with the five points, probably six.

Charity have the most talented youngsters in the league.

On their part, the Wanderers are eager to speed up the development of their own young players, who became an integral part of the team once they lost several key players in the offseason.

It is an uncertain process for Denis Musali, Ham Kayondo and the other senior voices within the Wanderers dressing room but if it is any consolation, Charity are proof that you can win things with kids.

Charity boast one of the highest winning percentages in the league over the last three seasons and if they can keep their team together for the foreseeable future, the silverware will follow.

One team that’s shortened the process of winning silverware are T20 champions Challengers, who travel to Jinja today to face the Jinja SS outfit.

The Challengers lost to Tornado B by 54 runs last week in the clash of the title favourites and will be eager to restore lost pride.
