Striker Madondo Joel and thirteen other Kirinya Jinja SS players have been summoned on the Busoga Province team ahead of the upcoming 2019 FUFA Drum.
Madondo has been one of the best players so far in the ongoing Uganda Premier League, scoring 12 goals, hence his inclusion was inevitable.
The second edition of the now famous tournament is set to kickoff on the weekend of March 30th – 31st.
David Bagoole who was named in last season’s best FUFA Drum team of the season, is among the Kirinya Jinja SS players to represent Busoga province.

Busoga, a province that occupies Eastern part of Uganda, will be coached by former Kirinya Jinja SS coach Charles Ayiekho, and assisted by Hassan Zungu.

This year, they will look to at least reach the finals, and will start their target against Tooro province. Kampala and Rwenzori are the other teams in Busoga’s group A.
