The Real Stars Sports Awards agency recently awarded the sweat and effort for the sportsmen in the various sports disciplines.
In the month of January 2019, Tooro United Football Club has been the biggest beneficiary with two accolades – best coach and player.
Goalkeeper Joel Mutakubwa and his head coach Wasswa Bbosa were named the best player and coach of the month respectively at the lavish and leafy Khalifa Executive Suites in Bugolobi, Kampala on Monday, 25 February 2019.
Mutakubwa, a goalkeeper formerly at Kirinya-Jinja S.S had three clean sheets for Tooro United during the month, as well guiding his club to the Stanbic Uganda Cup last 16 stage.

Bbosa’s achievements, like Mutakubwa were also on the same script.
To win the best coach accolade, Bbosa was chosen over BUL’s Peter Onen and Mbarara City’s Charles Livingstone Mbabazi.
