URA FC’s Sam Ssimbwa and Cromwell Rwothomio have been named the Pilsner best coach and player respectively for the concluded month of January.
URA FC has had a good month of January and winning both accolades doesn’t come as a surprise for a team that occupies fourth place with 33 points.
Ssimbwa beat Busoga United’s Abbey Bogere Kikomeko and Bright Stars’ Paul Kiwanuka for the award.
“Am happy to be here and I give special thanks to my players and backroom staff,” said Ssimbwa. “We are focussed on winning as many games as possible this season.
URA has won four games out of five in the month of January where they beat KCCA, Bright Stars, BUL and SC Villa. They were held to a one all draw by Tooro United.
” We could have beaten Tooro but it was a poor pitch. I can’t blame the referees because they did their work,” added Ssimbwa.
Ssimbwa also won this award last season in March.
The event was held on Monday morning at Kati Kati where the two winners received Sh1M each, courtesy of Pilsner.
Rwothomio beat teammate Saidi Kyeyune and Police FC’s Ben Ocen to the award.
He scored three goals in a month where he got one man of the match performance.
“I think this is a good motivation for me and it has been because of good work. There is good competition at the club and it pushes us to deliver more,” said the former Paidha Black Angels player.
Maroons’ Douglas Bamweyana (Coach) and Vipers’ Fahad Bayo were named the best in September.
Vipers’ then coach Edward Golola and BUL striker Robert Mukongotya clinched October honours.
November’s best coach and player were Mike Mutebi (KCCA) and Steven Mukwala (Maroons) respectively.
