On a rather encouraging note for Uganda Cranes midfielder, Khalid Aucho, now on trials in Scotland with Aberdeen F.C, the club manager, Derek McInnes has showered praise onto the gifted midfielder.

After featuring in a friendly game against Scottish League Two side, Aucho a second half substitute in Aberdeen’s 4-1 emphatic victory against Arbroath at the Gayfield Park was outstanding with a string of well coordinated passes.

Aucho was praised by McInnes for the quick adjustment to the environment in Europe.

Quoted by the club website, the manager singled out the midfielder’s industrious play throughout the 25 minutes he played in the game after coming on for Daniel Harvie in the 50th minute.

He’s done absolutely fine.

It’s never easy for a boy coming from that side of the world, it is totally different to what he is used to in terms of temperature, style of play and everything else.

He has shown a real eagerness, he is a good kid, he’s worked hard.

We will try and get a closed door game for him in the next few days or so, so we can have a proper assessment of him, but he’s done fine in training and he can be pleased with what he has shown so far

Aucho has previously featured at Simba in Uganda, Tusker and Gor Mahia in Kenya.
