Okot focused on winning double with KCCA FC


KCCA FC skipper Denis Okot wants to lift the Uganda Cup

Despite their achievements in the Uganda Premier League and Uganda Cup over the years, KCCA FC has never won both trophies in the same season.

However, the Lugogo will have a shot at re-writing history when they play in the 2017 Uganda Cup final on Thursday, June 15 at the Green Light Stadium in Arua.

The Uganda Premier League champions will face FUFA Big League side Paidha Black Angels in the final and captain Denis Okot wants to open a new chapter by winning a double that has eluded the Kasasiro over the years.

He told the club website: “It will be a good feeling to win the cup final, for so many reasons.

“We have already secured the league, which we defended successfully. Winning a double would open a new chapter in the history of KCCA FC, something the club has never done.”

While Paidha Black Angels will be playing in their first Cup final, KCCA will be playing in a record sixteenth final but have not seen glory in the last four final appearances.

KCCA has already registered several milestones this term that include playing at the group stage of the CAF Confederation Cup but Okot says the focus is now on the Cup final.

“Much as we are very proud of what we achieved, that’s behind us right now. We have a cup final to win and that’s where the focus (is).”
