“First matches are always hard for all teams but my boys managed to follow the instructions and our style of play, earning us these three points,” he says. Express FC’s George Ssimwogerere blamed his loss on what he termed as strict FUFA laws. 

“Most of our senior players have not yet acquired licenses because of a few clearances needed on both their passports and national identity cards, which left me with no, option but lineup those available for today’s match,” he said. 

Adding that, “it is also true that I faced a setback after releasing over 20 players and acquiring new ones who are still learning to harmonize in the same style of play, so we are working hard to better our team for next match.”
