Nominee for Male Player of the year;

Keziron Kizito (DOB: 17th January 1997); Vipers SC, Uganda Kobs and Uganda Cranes.

Keziron was a pivotal player in the midfield of Vipers as they notched up their second league title in the club’s history. Plying his maiden season in the top flight, Kizito’s passing in the middle of the park caught many of his opponents unawares.
