Bruno Bunyaga is one of the URA FC players with two licenses this season following the introduction of the double licensing rule by FUFA which aims at granting players more playing time in lower division clubs.

The promising forward since joining the Tax Collectors in the middle of last season has found it hard to break into the first team despite his hardwork in training.

And now with the double licensing rule in place, he is already benefiting from it at FUFA Big League side Kiyinda Boys where he is current leading scorer with 3 goals from two games.

Bunyaga is grateful for the new rule and believes it will help him get his confidence back and also convince his parent club URA FC to give him more playing time.

“I am grateful for this new rule by FUFA as It’s helping me get more playing time which I haven’t been getting at URA FC and to score goals at Kiyinda is a pleasure which also motivates me to work more harder as well as giving me confidence when I return to my parent club URA FC.”

He told the club media.

Bunyaga now wants to make history by becoming the first player to score in two different leagues in the same season.

“I now pray and hope to get playing time at URA FC so that I can score and make history as the first player to score in two different leagues in the same season which to me will be a dream come true because It’s amongst my short term goals in the first round.

He added.

At URA FC, Bunyaga has scored one goal that came last season against Gaddafi FC at Mehta stadium Lugazi.

Justin Opiro, Ronald Andabati and teenage left back Amis Bwangani are the other URA FC players who play for Kiyinda Boys in the Big League under the FUFA double licensing rule.

The Tax Collectors will return into action on 21st October when they welcome Wakiso Giants FC in the Startimes Uganda Premier League.
