Kiboga Young’s surprise victory in the Uganda Cup could be overturned in case SC Villa Jogoo wins a petition lodged to the FUFA Competitions department.

According to the petition filed, SC Villa Jogoo alleges that Kiboga Young fielded a player, Brian Mugume – who belongs to them.

The petition was filed by SC Villa CEO, Ivan Kakembo to the FUFA Competitions Director, Ali Mwebe.

“Brian Mugume is a registered player with SC Villa Jogoo who disappeared and only surfaced in Kiboga Young during our game…” reads part of the petition that Kawowo Sports has seen.

The FUFA competitions committee, which is responsible for running the Uganda Cup is investigating the case before summoning Kiboga Young officials to file their defence.

According to Kiboga Young head coach, Felix Kawooya Ssekabuzza, a CAF ‘C’ licenced coach, who also worked with SC Villa head coach Shafiq Bisaso at Busujju Ssaza as assistant coach, SC Villa is fighting a losing battle.

They (SC Villa Jogoo) do not want to lose sportingly. The player they are talking about (Brian Mugume) has been playing Masaza football and has never signed for any Super division club. They are fighting a losing battle.

Kiboga Young ejected SC Villa Jogoo after a tense penalty shoot out that ended 5-4 at Kiboga Ssaza play ground.

Normal time of the game had ended goal-less in a rain laden fixture.

The other two premier league sides that were eliminated included Proline and Kirinya – Jinja S.S.

Proline fell 1-0 to The Saints and Kirinya-Jinja S.S were 2-1 losers to Express at the Mutesa II Stadium, Wankulukuku.
