The URA FC gaffer Sam Bamweyana Ssimbwa believes the promotion of the trio shows the commitment the club has towards young players.

The young players have been vetted well enough by the technical team before joining our senior team. They have an incredible opportunity to stamp authority in the team and we have trust in them to deliver.
