URA Football Club provided the perfect finale to their relatively excellent season with 1-0 win over 2005 league champions Police at Nakivubo last evening.

URA were crowned league champions, and their campaign will probably be remembered for two figures –– Patrick Ochan and Phillip Obwiny.

Obwiny, whose presence continues to cause heartaches from dead-ball situations, swept in yet another trademark free-kick from 25 yards on 70 minutes to hand the taxmen what was ultimately an undeserved victory.

URA failed to display the resilient spirit that had carried them through their 30 previous league games.

With 5,000-odd fans in attendance, URA, safe in the knowledge that the league title was already secured, at times turned the proceedings into an exhibition game.

Police’s efforts were undone by some inaccurate finishing, and indeed, had Mike Serumaga and Noordin Juuko been more precise, the cops would have had a greater say in the final result.

National Council of Sports (NCS) general secretary Jasper Aligawesa was chief guest, and he handed over the trophy to URA captain David Kazibwe and 25 winners medals to the team.

In today’s encounters, KCC FC are determined to put the skids under SC Villa’s dream of a second-place finish with the help of their striking assassin Hamis Kitagenda. Club coach Jackson Mayanja yesterday maintained that his charges would overlook their salary arrears plight going into the derby at Nakivubo that still serves the 1997 champions with a chance of securing the second place on the table.

“We have had a good season and finishing second will be worth it. The players have decided to play and with promise that their pay will be sorted out. It will also be a chance for them to express themselves,” Mayanja stated.

While KCC hope Kitagenda can place them in the driving seat in the city derby, Villa have their own mean machine in Henry Kisekka.
