A week after they defended their crown with two games to end season, KCCA were officially crowned as Ugandan league champions on Saturday.

On the day, Mike Mutebi’s charges who won a 12th title season in history beat already relegated Sadolin Paints 2-1 at Phillip Omondi stadium, Lugogo.

Two first half goals from the league’s top marksman, Geoffrey Sserunkuma and a beauty from midfield gem Tom Masiko were enough for the hosts while Karim Ndugwa scored the visitors’ consolation.

Sserunkuma scored as early as eleven minutes to put smiles on the already smiling fans and Masiko added the other eleven minutes later.

Former Victors, Lweza, AFC Leopards and SC Villa striker Ndugwa cut the lead with 28 minutes to the final whistle but there were no more goals to celebrate on the night.

Maximum points put KCCA’s tally to 66 points, 9 more than they managed last season when they won the title with 57 points.

Sserunkuma finished the campaign with 21 goals and becomes the first top scorer since Herman Wasswa in 2012-13 to score at least 20 league goals.

FUFA president Moses Magogo handed over the title to captain Denis Okot and the team partied away with their fans into the night.

Like they did this year, the Kasasiro, now four titles adrift of record league winners SC Villa will represent the country in the CAF Champions League in 2018.
