After a goalless draw, Anyama saved Godfrey Lwesibawa’s penalty to give Onduparaka a 4-3 shootout win to reach the semis.

Anyama who joined Onduparaka from Saints FC, had left Onduparaka after his contract expired, and signed a contract with newly promoted UPL side Wakiso Giants.

“We hereby submit our complaint against Onduparaka who used an ineligible player in the name of Richard Anyama during our Pilsner Super 8 game on Sunday, the 4th August 2019 at Green Light Stadium in Arua,” reads the petition seen this website.

“We request you to use the powers vested in you by the rules and regulations to award us the three points of that game.”

Onduparaka is one of the four teams in this year’s Super Eight semis. KCCA FC, Mbarara City and Vipers are the others.
