The FUFA Junior league was designed to cater for players under 18 years and it was a requirement from all the 16 premier league sides if they were to be licensed for the new season. 

The players in this league have a chance of playing for the  senior sides. In case a team wins with more than a two-goal margin, it is awarded four points instead of three.

Elsewhere, league top scorer  Nathaniel Atamba (eight goals) and Allan Ahimbisibwe were on target as Mbarara City beat Express 2-1. Brian Beera scored the consolation for the Red Eagles.

In the Treble Group, KCCA walloped Maroons 4-0 away in Luzira. Sadat Anaku, Francis Jurua, Innocent Shaban and Issa Ochama each had a goal for KCCA.  Group leaders Onduparaka drew 1-1 with UPDF.
