Kyetume's veteran forward Robert Ssentongo and Busoga United coach Abbey Kikomeko were named as Uganda Premier League player and coach of the month respectively.
The pair were feted at a ceremony held in Kampala on Monday.
The former Uganda Cranes striker was named the best player for the month of February after notching six goals and registering four assists beating Busoga United’s David Bagoole and Kyetume goalkeeper Joel Mutakubwa.
“I am humbled for this award. I would not do it alone but by the teamwork from the rest of my fellow players at Kyetume. The target is to score more goals in the remaining games of the second round” Ssentongo noted.
Kikomeko beat SC Villa's Edward Kaziba to emerge the best coach after guiding Busoga to five wins in February.
“I want to thank all the stakeholders who have worked collectively worked to develop the game of football in football. To win this award has been teamwork effort with my fellow technical members on the team, players and fans. I also want to thank FUFA, the award organizers and the media for the work well done in unison. This award will motivate us as a team to finish strongly in the league when the league resumes” Kikomeko added.
Each of the awards comes with Shs 1,000,000 ($266) and a plaque.
