After some mixed results early on, the Eastern Giants are now looking the real deal
The team climaxed the first round with a three game unbeaten run and it’s placed in 9th position on the table with 20 points from the opening fifteen Uganda Premier League games.
Of the fifteen, BUL FC bagged six impressive victories. These came off Jinja city neighbors – Busoga United, KCCA FC, Onduparaka, Soltilo Bright Stars, Malaba Youth Development Associations and Kitara FC. Two were draws – against SC Villa and Mbarara City but seven were losses.
Three of our splendid wins were earned at Kyabazinga Stadium and we would majestically also fight for three victories from the eight away games we played.
For the two stalemates, one was a two all draw against SC Villa in Bugembe, in what was our season’s opener while the one all draw against Mbarara City came on the road in Mbarara at Kakyeka stadium.
We scored a whooping nineteen (19) goals and conceded only 21. Joseph Ssemujju took responsibility of five goals. Musa Esenu, Deogracious Ojok and Simon Peter Oketch scored three apiece. Robert Mukogotya and Anwar Ntege were each on the score sheet twice while Richard Wandyaka netted once to complete the return of the nineteen goals.
The last three consecutive positive results – one all draw against Mbarara City and wins against Kitara FC and Bright Stars marked the first half of our UPL season and they demonstrated that the team has began clicking.
BUL scored six goals in that undefeated run and the feeling is, there is more to come from the Eastern Giants.
We shall begin our preparations for the second round of Uganda Premier League on Wednesday March 24. The team shall resume training with a gym session at Health First Gym in the morning
