FBL: The Saints Beatified, Maroons Reclaims Glory Days

Saints Fc and Maroons have been promoted to the 2015-1016 season of the Azam Uganda Premier league.

The two grabbed the only two direct slots awarded to the leaders of the respective Big league groups.

The Saints saw off stern opposition from Jinja Municipal from the beginning of the year, side effects pills a feat that saw the latter reducing a seven point gap and even go on top of the table into the match day.

Alex Kitata got the only goal of the game just six minutes from the start after beating an offside trap set by JMC and firing a low left shot past an advancing Mafuudu Salim in the opponent’s goal.

They now finish the league on top with 57 points, buy just two ahead of JMC who now head for playoffs.

Water Fc joins JMC in the playoffs as the third team after earning a point against fourth placed Ndejje University.

In Masaka RC, patient Coach Asaph Tumwebaze was a happy man after his boys delivered the much needed win through Musa Ssali solitary strike in the 22nd minute.

The win was enough to quell down the threat of Jinja SS who thumped Kireka United by 3-1 in Kiira. The prison wardens now return to the league they were two years ago.


The other promotion spot will be awarded to the winner of the promotion playoffs which will have two teams from Jinja, Jinja Municipal and Jinja SS, tussling out with Masaka LC and Water FC respectively.

The matches will be played on Wednesday 13th May 2015 and the victors in those qualifiers will face each other on Saturday 16th May. All fixtures will be played at Lugogo Stadium.
