Express are Uganda League Champions

Coach Sam Simbwa guided Express FC to a League Title after 16 years

Outspoken coach, Sam Simbwa, led his club, Express, to the Uganda Super League title on Sunday, after a 2-1 victory over Bidco at the Nelson Mandela Stadium in Namboole.

On a final day when three teams had a chance for the crown, Express finished on 54 points. Bunamwaya finished on 53 points after a 1-0 win over defending champions URA [51] who needed victory while hoping Express would lose to Bidco.

It was Express’s first league title in 16 years and Simbwa was commended for raising the team from mediocre status at the beginning of the season to a formidable side.

Simbwa coached the then Kenyan Premier League champions, Sofapaka of Nairobi, in the first half of the 2010 season.

Cash-strapped Express were seen as hopeless against endowed teams such as URA, funded by the country’s tax collection agency, Uganda Revenue Authority.
