It was youthful KJT’s final training session before the final, and Ronaldo had a quick word with the KJT coach, Ronald Ssali afterwards, telling Red Pepper in an interview, ‘the sensations were amazing’.

The senior six vacist from St Mary’s SS Kitende who has a big trail lined up in Sweden later this year twisted his right arm on Wednesday, taken out twice for treatment when KJT/Rwenshama overcame a hard fighting Mutundwe Lions 2-0 at the KCCA Stadium in Lugogo.

Asked about the prospect of facing Jinja based Kirinya-Jinja SS, the youngster said they command respect having dismissed top favourites Baza Holdings 2- 0 in the other semifinal, and said the final is ’50-50′, which is at odds with former Proline striker, Sulait Luzige’s message, who said Kirinya are favourite.

The two sides (KJT/Rwenshama and Jinja s.s/Kirinya) will now vie for the last available place for the third team to enter the highest football league in Uganda.

“The players played according to instructions, but now there is an important game of the season to play on Saturday”, KJT’s Ssali.

Head to head, the two Elgon group teams have met twice in their history with KJT winning once while the other game ended goalless.
