Promotional Final (FUFA Big League):
- Paidha Black Angels 0 (4) – 0 (2) Kitara F.C
Championship Final: Ndejje University 1-0 Nyamityobora
West Nile region based club Paidha Black Angels F.C sealed their promotion to the highest tier, Uganda Premier League after defeating Kitara on Sunday.
Allan Kabonge’s coached side joined the likes of Nyamityobora and Ndejje University who had earlier earned direct slots to the top flight.
Rains shortly before the official team warm ups condensed the humid Lugogo turf to cool down the temperatures.
In the 90 minutes, there were half chances created for either sides.
Paidha Black Angels’ forwards Yudah Mugalu and Yusuf Ssozi were kept under check throughout the game by Yasin Mubiru and Moses Odela.
During the tense penalty shoot-out, Paidha Black Angels won 4-2, scoring through Yusuf Ssozi, second half subsistute Andrew Kidega, Yudah Mugalu and another substitute Ceaser Olega.
Ivan Kyotelekera and Samuel Adibo scored for Kitara.
Paidha Black Angels head coach Allan Kabonge “The Messiah” Kivewala achieved yet another landmark feat guiding a fourth club to top flight division.
Previously Kabonge has guided Aurum Roses, Onduparaka and lately Masavu.
Am so happy. I am Allan Kabonge the Messiah. I am simply talented. When I am coaching, I tell the players to go and enjoy themselves. I educate players. This is just me. I am just so happy for this achievement.
Paidha Black Angels joins fellow West Nile region club Onduparaka in the top flight football.
