EDITOR—An eleventh title in 15 CECAFA final appearances and three back-to-back wins is simply ecstatic, to say the least. But the 2008/2009 back-to-back package is special in many respects—it has been won largely by youngsters who ply their trade in the region and by a coach gradually but surely turning the Ugandan team into an Arsenal of sorts.
