Uganda U17 team will look to register a positive start as they get their campaign at the 2018 U17 CECAFA championship underway on Sunday.

The Cubs who are also the last winners of the championship that has been in limbo since 2009 will seek to begin the title defence on a high as they take on Tanzania at Muyinga stadium on Sunday.

Uganda itself has not been active in the age bracket with their last engagement coming four years ago in the U17 Africa qualifiers against Zambia.

The team gave rise to several starlets such as Frank ‘Zaga’ Tumwesigye, Mohammed Shaban and Julius Poloto among others who are now pulling strings in the U20(Hippos).

Peter Onen, the Cubs coach is confident his troops are in good shape ahead of the showdown against Tanzania.

“We are ready, the players are prepared and focused for the game against Tanzania. I believe we have all it takes to get a good start.” He said.
