Kagere hands Simba first league win
Meddie Kagere's goal in the 2nd minute was all Simba SC needed to beat Prisons FC in their opening fixture of the 2018/19 Tanzanian Premier League on Wednesday 22nd August.
Kagere, who joined Simba from Kenyan giants Gor Mahia in a lucrative deal, has hit the ground running and was impressive for Wekundu wa Msimbazi during the pre-season.
In other matches played on the same day, Biashara United beat Singida 1-0, Kagera Sugar beat Mwadui United 2-1, Coastal Union and Lipuli FC battled to a one-all draw, Ndanda FC beat Ruvu Shooting by a solitary goal while Mbao FC edged out Alliance FC 1-0.
The TPL kicked off on Wednesday afternoon with uncertainty with Vodacom Tanzania, who have been the league's main sponsor, opting not to renew their contract. Only broadcast partners Azam and banking sponsor KCB Tanzania have committed their support to the league this season.
