It is yet another season that Uganda’s Black, Yellow and Red national flag will be flying aloft albeit majestically at the annual London Youth Football Tournament.
Like the case was the previous four years, Uganda will be proudly represented by fast growing Edgars Youth programme.
Youngsters from four different age brackets of U-7, U-9, U-11 and U-15 were officially flagged at the Africa Bible University on Monday, 22nd July 2019.
These will play in the 5, 7, 8 and 11 aside games as reflected by their respective ages.
The tournament that attracts hundreds of young players aged 7 to 20 years will kick off on 25th July and climax after four days.
Former Uganda Cranes, SC Villa and Police hard working midfielder Dan “Mujanpani” Mubiru, now a vastly experienced coach in handling budding footballers traveled with the Edgars Youth Programme team.
Mubiru has the hope that they will perform well as he apprecitated the parents of the players in a special way;
We have a strong team and we expect to put up a great performance. We are very confident that our youngsters will be achieve success in London. I thank the Parents for the support rendered to these rising stars.Dan Mubiru, coach at Edgars Youth Programme
