FJL: Kirinya Overpower Soana Amid Age Cheating Doubts

A superb second half show on Sunday afternoon against a lucklustre Soana junior team ensured Kirinya Jinja SS junior team pick their first league win.

Attacking midfielder Vincent Zziwa netted early in the first half and late in the second to add on Fred Massa’s rebounder to gift the Jinja side a deserved win.

Zziwa swayed a powerful 40- yard freekick that bounced on the top right angle to open the game in the 30th minute. Godfrey Musana had pulled Ashiraf Kawaasi in a build up to goal.

Soana replied the strike through Joel Okello who placed the ball beyond Nabeeta’s reach in the 42nd minute inside a crowded box to end the first half balanced.

The hosts put up a solid show in the second half and in the 50th minute pulled away courtesy of Cranes captain Geoffrey Massa’s nephew who tapped in a rebounder thrown on his way by Bukenya Jamil from Zziwa’s powerful drive.

Age doubt.

Soana head coach William Kyeswa raised concern over the eligibility of Kirinya Jinja SS midfielder Vincent Zziwa whom he wasn’t convinced was below the 17 year old group.

“They had midfield players who were good on the ball and understood each other well, more about ” he said but casted his doubts that “However I don’t think their number 8 (Zziwa) is fit to play with this group. I just don’t know how he passed the test and got the license.”


“Working with young boys needs some patience because you’re just giving them their primary knowledge. So losing two games is not good for the team but we have to give the boys time to learn without a lot of pressure, capsule ” Kyeswa added
