Ugandan youngsters may have had a poor tournament but they returned with exposure and experience from the Zone 4.2 U16 team championships.

"Our team did not perform as expected, but atleast they got the feel of an international game. We hope to have them undergo intensive training and mold them into strong players," said Namwanje
The players concluded the event with another defeat when they lost to Kenya Three in the last game of the double round robin contest in Mombasa, Kenya on Sunday morning.
Uganda lost seven games to Kenyan teams and only scooped one win in game seven from Kenya Four, with a couple of draws from Tanzania in the first and second leg of the contest.
Marvin Atuhaire Bagonza and Pauline Biyinzika picked three points apiece while team captain Denise Butungi concluded the contest with a point.
