Having witnessed his side bow out of the Uganda Cup on Thursday, Police football club head coach, Angelo Lonyesi has castigated the poor standard of the play ground at Kajjansi.

We wonder why the FUFA competitions can allow such a high profile quarter final match in the Uganda cup to take place on such a bare ground on a play field with no perimeter fencing moreover

Loneysi hinted.

Lweza football club, a debutant side in the national premier league overcame the 2005 league winners, Police by a lone goal scored by midfielder, Peter Kamanje in the 56th minute.

Lonyesi even questioned why Lweza F.C abandoned their league home ground at Wankulukuku stadium for the dusty Uganda clays play ground at Kajjansi.

There are lots of question marks why Lweza had to drop Wankulukuku for Kajjansi. This is not fair for football especially given the fact this was a quarter final match

This was the second match running that Lweza hosted at their Uganda clays play ground in this year’s Uganda Cup.

Lweza F.C overcame FUFA big league side, CRO from Mbale 2-0 in the round of 16 Uganda cup duel at the same ground.

FUFA declines to Comment:

Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) secretary, Ali Mwebe, however, deliberately refuses to comment on the matter.

Unless Police F.C forwards their grievance formally in writing, then we can come up with an official answer

As the norm has always been in the Uganda Cup, teams are given a chance to make a choice of the playing ground where they host their games in this knock out competition.
