David Obua- Head Coach

“Preparations have been horrible. It’s pissing so much because of the rain which has made it so hard to do training in Gayaza but that’s not an excuse as it’s the situation all over the country. We are going to do our best and work hard to get positive results against Arua Hill SC and the return of Joshua Lubwama is a boost to us as he is a special player.”

Rogers Omedwa.

“We are treating each game as a final because the competition is getting tight so we are not taking the Arua Hill game for granted. Amidst the harsh weather conditions, we have tried to rectify our mistakes to ensure we get back to winning ways. It’s every players dream to play and incase I am given chance I will work hard with my teammates to ensure we get positive results.”
