Sam Timbe (Head Coach)

“Fresh from being nominated for the Pilsner Coach of the match for February/March, the boss had this to say. “We have to work hard against Wakiso if we are to get positive results. The return of Mbowa is vital and I am hopeful he will play a key part in the encounter.”

“We are ready for the challenge. As URA we are taking this game as a final because every single game is a final since we didn’t perform to our best in the first round. We have to fill the gap with every single game that comes across us and it’s Wakiso in line.”
