The FUFA Drum-Match Day 5: Points up for grabs as teams return for crucial stage

All Provincial Teams will be eager to name full squads with more quality players when The FUFA Drum returns with match day 5 this weekend on 2nd and 3rd June across the country.

Local based stars like Paul Mucureezi and those playing abroad like Denis Onyango, Hassan Wasswa, Salim Jamal have not been able to play for their Province Team but have been following proceedings of the tournament.

With all players in recess following the end of the domestic Leagues both in Uganda and away where they play, the Head coaches of the 16 teams will be hopeful of making use of the services of these star players.

‘I know how much I miss playing for my Province. There is enough time for me to play for them during the offside. We need to collect good points from the remaining two games for our team’ said Mucureezi.

It is not clear what kind of involvement and support players like Onyango, Salim Jamal, Yunus Sentamu, Tony Mawejje, Murushidi Juuko will have towards their teams.

However putting in mind how much they treasure their cultures and traditions, it is highly likely that they will play a key role either on the pitch on offer any moral support.
