There will be a new name on the list of past winners of the Stanbic Uganda cup.

It will however be a second cup victory for Bright stars head coach Fred Kajoba who has won it before with Simba FC.

The 45th edition will see Big league champions Proline attempt to seal a double whereas Bright stars aim to embroider their name on the list of champions.

The two sides have been boosted by the availability of their star players who have been released from the Cranes camp in preparation for the COSAFA cup.

FUFA big league MVP 2019 Bright Anukani and Musitafa Mujuzi for Proline and Bright Stars’ skipper Nelson Senkatuka will spur the party.

Proline’s in form striker Bright Anukani is buoyed by the return to the team and he vows to win it for his team.

“I think my fellow players are more than ready to do what it takes for us to emerge champions, we are more determined and I believe us joining the rest of the squad is a great boost to the camp.”

“I am going to give it all it takes to help my side win this trophy.”

Hamza Muwonge who was instrumental in helping Bright Stars edge Express by saving two penalties is another man to watch.

The golden boot is another battle that will be decided tomorrow, front runner Cephas Kambugu of Kyetume has four goals, Proline’s Mustapha Mujuzi, and Ibrahim Bonyo will battle against Jamil Kaliisa and James Angu of Bright stars all have three goals.

The other players with three goals are KCCA’s Mike Mutyaba and Vipers’ Abraham Ndugwa.
