The 2017/18 Uganda Cup quarter final draw was held on Thursday at FUFA House in Mengo, Kampala.

For starters, KJT trains at Kakungulu Memorial play ground in Kibuli but host their Kampala fourth division matches at the Villa Park play ground in Nsambya, Kampala, the official training home of Sports Club Villa Jogoo.

KJT star player and captain Nicholas Kabonge upon learning of the draw noted;

This will be a game we have to prove that our previous victories were not by accident.

Besides, we are in the money bracket and the better we progress, the more money earned. We shall work for it
