There are four players with one goal apiece. Abubaker Walusimbi and Ramathan Kaheru (Jiddah African Child), Hakim Mutebi (Zebra), Kasubi Children Academy’s Joel Nakibinge and Soccer Stars’ Sadat Sserugo has one goal.
FUFA Youth football development officer Bashir Mutyaba, fresh from scouting talent in the recently concluded Copa schools’ national championship in Masaka lauded the idea by Kampala Regional Football Association.
Mutyaba called upon the other regions to follow suit.
I thank the idea started by Kampala Region District Association of starting the U-15 league. I call upon other regions in the country to follow the Kampala path.
This is the way to go in as far as developing talents from the grassroots is concerned.
