KCC FC players yesterday snubbed their first official training session until their five months wage-arrears are cleared.

“The club owes the old players four to five months salary arrears. They have decided to keep away until their arrears are settled,” a source that preferred anonymity disclosed.

KCC tactician Jackson Mayanja was frustrated having Owen Kibenge and a few fringe players hoping to impress and join the side in his first session yesterday.

“There are no players. I do not know what is happening. I came prepared but have been disappointed,” Mayanja (left) said.

Meanwhile, the National Super League kicks off November 18 with action outside the city.

Two matches open the 2006/7 Super League season at Iganga’s Saza ground and Akii Bua stadium in Lira.

“We have set these two encounters for the kick off but a full fixture will be out on Monday. We have decided to hold the matches outside Kampala in order not to interrupt the Buganda Bika (clan) football tournament final,” explained competitions committee secretary Moses Magogo.

However, the two grounds to host the opening matches are among the three that are yet to be cleared by the competitions committee. The other is Mbale’s Municipal stadium.

“We have been monitoring them and the final inspection will be this weekend. I am sure they will be able to host the matches.”

Magogo also said that the rules and regulations booklet will be out by Monday to give the clubs time to revise them ahead of the kick off.

“It is good that the executive approved most of the rules. What is yet to be done is for us to put them down and print them. This will be finalised by Monday,” he explained.
