Jinja Municipal Council Promoted To Azam Uganda Premier League

Jinja Municipal Council 6-2 Kirinya Jinja S.S

Jinja Municipal Council (JMC) overcame Kirinya Jinja SS with a 6-2 win and earned a promotion to Azam Uganda Premier League in a match held at Phillip Omondi stadium, Lugogo on Saturday evening.


Jinja MC managed to eliminate Masaka SS through Abdul Rahman Rajab’s only goal in the 5th minute to reach the final verdict of the FUFA Big league final.

The eastern based sides have joined the likes of the Saints FC and champions Maroons FC having topped Rwenzori and Elgon groups respectively.

Goals from Richard Wandyaka, Ambrose Kirya, left back Aggrey Madoi and Jimmy Kalenda were enough to seal it for Coach James Odoch’s boys.

Kirinya Jinja SS’ only two goals came through Musa Magumba and Yunus Sibira but were not enough to lead them to Uganda’s top flight league.

Meanwhile the other day’s final game saw Maroons FC as the overall winner of the FUFA Big league after beating The Saints FC by a goal to nil.
