The year 2020 has been what one would describe as a roller coaster for URA FC amid the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic. Stretching back from the previous 2019/2020 to the current 2020/2021 season, the results have been great.

It must be noted that in the last five years, the Tax collectors have not registered more points in the single calendar year (with few games played) than 2020. We have won eleven games from 17 games registering 33 points (from wins).

On the-other-hand, we missed out on a few points making 4 draws and averaging 4 points. The draws were against Tooro United, Kyetume FC, Mbarara City and Solitilo Bright Stars.

We only lost two games, both arising from the 2019/2020 season against Busoga United (3-0) and Police FC (1-2). The total points collected out of a possible 51 points were 37 points.

Generally, the year was one to write home about and indeed one to remember. As we access the year’s performances, let us critically look at the winning performances in the two seasons.

2019/2020 season

The year started with a bang against rivals SC Villa at home at the Arena of Visions. We would go ahead to win the game 2-0 followed by a convincing 3-1 win away at BUL FC before concluding the league run with a decimal 1-0 win against the then Bright Stars.

Still in the month of January, we took a trip away to Lugazi Municipal where we won 4-0 in the Stanbic Uganda Cup before concluding the month with a 2-1 home win against KCCA FC.

In the month of February, we played out an 8-3 goal thriller with Nyamityobora FC, won the home game against Vipers in a convincing 3-1 affair before crowning it with an incredible 2-1 win against Express FC. 

2020/2021 season

The new season saw us register our first win against rivals SC Villa in a 2-1 victory at the Arena of Visions in Ndejje which was followed by an away victory against BUL FC before climaxing the first five games of the season with a big win at Lugogo against KCCA FC.

Nyakoojo Benjamin’s 2020 form is one that cant go unnoticed.

This was a sweet victory considering it was away from home and against a good side. The break couldn’t have come at a better time though many of our fans would argue that this break wasn’t needed at this particular time since momentum was building.

KEY POINTERS

In 2020, URA FC managed to beat SC Villa and KCCA FC in two fixtures making it 6 points out of a possible 6 points.

We also managed to beat both Express FC and SC Vipers in a single fixture played making it 3 points out of a possible 3 points from each.

The just-concluded year will go down in the history books as an impressive year for us and we can only hope the new year will provide the same positive results or even better.
