BUL FC forward Alex Kitata and Kitara FC head coach Brian Ssenyondo have been named the Pilsner Uganda premier league’s player and coach of the month for September/October respectively in a function held at Kati Kati restaurant in Kampala on Wednesday evening.
Kitata receives the award for the first time in his career having scored three goals in four games which kept the Eastern Giants joint top on the table with 15 points.
Kitata scored one goal in the 2-1 win at Arua Hill, delivered a brace in the 3-0 sweet win over Maroons and was also on target as BUL edged URA FC 1-0 at the end of the month of October after the nominations.
The forward becomes the third BUL player to win the award after Simon Peter Oketch and Richard Wadyaka in the 2021/22 and 2022/23 season respectively.
For Ssenyondo, he won all the five opening StarTimes Uganda Premier League (SUPL) matches with Kitara FC to top standings on 15 points just like his competitors Abby Kikomeko and Hussein Mbalangu.
However, the Kitara head coach had a better goal difference than Kikomeko and one more win that Mbalangu.
