Uganda Revenue Authority Football Club are in Lesotho ahead of the Sunday return leg clash against Correctional Services in the first round of the Orange Africa Champions League.  

Coach Alex Isabirye says the taxmen are not contented with the 3-0 first-leg win and are therefore hungry for more. The game will be played at the Setsoto Stadium’s artificial turf in Maseru under the watchful eyes of South African referee Victor Hlungwani.

The Bell Lager Super League leading marksman, Robert Ssentongo, who was again snubbed for the Cranes trip to Congo Brazzaville, will lead the URA attack together with Augustine Nsumba and former professonal Vincent Kayizzi.

URA, who have always fallen out at the first hurdle of the Orange Champions League, will be more than hungry to progress closer to the money bracket. They will, however, need to eliminate another team in the next round before qualifying for the group stages that would guarantee them over US$50,000.

Geoffrey Kyondo, the team’s communications person said although the team is flying to South Africa, they will connect to Maseru on an Autopax Passenger Services Ltd Bus.

The team in Maseru includes Allan Pwiny, Brian Bwette, Allan Munaaba, Lawrence Ssegawa, Samuel Senkoomi and Asuman Alishe. The others are Samuel Mubiru, Phillip Sempiira, Benson Ociti, Robert Ssentongo, Vincent Kayizzi and Saidi Kyeyune. Also on the team are Manko Kaweesa, Enos Kikonyogo, Augustine Nsumba, Oscar Agaba, Osman Wejjuli and Sula Bagala

The officials traveling with the team are Juma Marjan Abdul Hamid who is the leader of delegation, Sam Okabo as team manager, Coaches Alex Isabirye and his deputy Godffrey Ndugga, Goalkeeping coach Sadiq Wassa, Team Doctor Jackson Walugembe, Moses Kibumba, Asuman Kibirige, Geoffrey Kyondo, Ceaser Labeja and Simon Ogira.
