Mathew Lucha Fundraiser Match Set for Today

The football fraternity in Eastern town of Jinja and well wishers have organized a football match between Jinja Veterans and CAF A coaching students to fundraise for Mathew Lucha who is terribly ill.

“On Saturday 30th January, dosage we have organized for a match to raise some money to help our veteran player and coach Mathew Lucha’s medical bills, ” one of the organisers told ChimpSport.

“He is in a deplorable state and we really have to come to his aid as fast as possible. We hope that as many people as possible turn up for the game.”

The Jinja Veterans team will be guided by Michael Dogu while the CAF A coaches will be captained by former Cranes Skipper David Obua.

Lucha is a veteran midfielder who joined newly promoted Nile Breweries FC in 1978.

He was nicknamed ‘Zagallo’ by many fans who ‘equated’ him to the 1970 Brazilian World Cup star Mario Zagallo.

He joined SC Villa in 1982 but later returned to Nile.

Lucha entered into the Cranes setup in 1979 while still in A-level.


Lucha has recently coached JMC Hippos and Jinja SS in the Fufa big league, guiding the latter to two consecutive finals.
