THE Super League ends today with Express caretaker coach Sam Ssimbwa seeking to end his brief reign at Wankulukuku undefeated in the league.

Ssimbwa, Express’ fifth coach of the season, and who volunteered to save the troubled club from relegation, is determined to get a result against Masaka at Wankulukuku.

“This is a very important match for me. I want to win and finish in the top 10. I think that would be a quite a respectable position in the circumstances,” Ssimbwa remarked.

Ssimbwa’s charges held champions URA 0-0 in their previous outing, and will be boosted by the return of towering defender Francis Onyango, who has been out with injury.

“Since we managed to get a result against URA without some of my key players, I believe the boys will do well,” Ssimbwa stated.

The Express tactician is particularly impressed by striker Moses Aduni’s improved displays.

The 2005 champions Police end the league with a tricky tie away to Iganga.
The league ends, but the fate of the aborted Mbale Heroes-Mukono TC match remains undecided. FUFA will rule on the game on Friday.

The match did not take place following an interim order issued by the Mbale High Court challenging FUFA’s eligibility to organise the Super League.

The high court in Kampala quashed the order pending perusal of the file, which has arrived at the inspector of Courts in Kampala from the Mbale High Court.

The files were delivered after the football body contested the manner in which the order, barring the federation from running the national league and relegating Mbale Heroes from the said league, was granted.

The Inspector of Courts acting registrar had given Mbale High Court acting deputy registrar Musimbi Muse up to yesterday to dispatch the files to Kampala for review and advice.

“The files have arrived in Kampala and we will be summoned, perhaps not later than this week, for further directions,” revealed FUFA legal officer Fred Muwema.

Mbale’s contention was that according to the FUFA constitution, it is the Super Division Clubs Association (SDCA) designated to run the league.
FUFA will hold an extra-ordinary assembly next month to amend the constitution.

In a related move, the soccer body executive meets Saturday to discuss the court order and hear proposals that three companies, Nile Breweries, Uganda Breweries and Gateway Television, intend to sponsor next year’s league.

FUFA Chief Executive Officer Charles Masembe confirmed that the executive will meet at FUFA House in Mengo to consider the proposals of the possible league sponsors.

“We will basically look at the terms of the proposed contracts, what the sponsors will be providing, among others,” said Masembe.

+KCC whipped KA & SE 4-2 to book a Kakungulu Cup quarter-final berth at Nakivubo yesterday.
KCC take on Moses Magogo’s giant-killing Mutundwe in the quarter-finals on Friday.
