Midfielder Jackson Nunda finally made his debut at URA FC in their 3-1 win over SC Villa at Ndejje on Sunday.

Nunda had to wait for 593 days to play his first game for the Tax Collectors after enduring a lengthy knee injury surgery and rehab process.

The lanky offensive midfielder signed a three year contract with URA FC in August 2020 but couldn’t kick a ball until Sunday March 29th.

The former SC Villa and KCCA midfielder came off the bench at the hour mark to replace Moses Sseruyidde Kinye.

He was then involved in the club’s third goal after a nice exchange with Steven Dese Mukwala and Viane Sekajugo, a move that set up goal scorer Ibrahim Dada Juma in the 86th minute.

Nunda’s first appearance on URA’s match day squad was during the Stanbic Uganda Cup game against Mbarara City at Kakyeka.

The victory over Villa elevated URA to the second place on 40 points and will have to take on Arua Hill in their next fixture on Wednesday 30th March.
