Vipers Beat Masavu in Buildup Game

Friendly game
Vipers 2-0 Masavu

Vipers continued their preparations ahead of the 2016/17 season with a win over Fufa Big League side Masavu in a friendly game played on Wednesday morning at Muteesa II stadium, purchase Wankulukuku.

Keziron Kizito and new recruit Kakaire “Kaka” Brian scored in either half to give Vipers a 2-0 win, their fourth successive win in preseason.

Kizito broke the deadlock at the stoke of halftime when he pounced on a rebounding ball from Masavu’s goalkeeper after initially saving Joseph Ssemujju’s attempt. The creative midfielder took advantage of a goal melee to slot home in the 45th minute.

After recess, new signing Kakaire who came on a second half substitute doubled the lead for the Uganda cup holders at the hour mark.

The highlight of the game is when Vipers head coach Abdallah Mubiru employed lanky goalkeeper James Alitho as a centre forward in the second half.

Mubiru believes the buildup games have tuned his team and given them a good test ahead of the new season.

“The matches we have played have enabled us to identify our mistakes and rectify them. I believe we are in a perfect situation for the forthcoming season,” said Mubiru.


Vipers will kick start the 2016/17 season with a Fufa Super cup game against KCCA on Sunday at Wankulukuku before the first league game at home to Bright stars on 19th August.

Alitho James, Nicholas Wadada, Dan Bilikwalira, Shafik Bakaki, Halid Lwaliwa, Deus Bukenya, Kizito Keziron, Ssemujju Joseph, Duncan Sseninde, Brian Nkuubi, William Wadri
