Bright Stars FC skipper Nelson Senkatuka, a winner of the CECAFA cup 2015 in Ethiopia made his bow again in the tournament this time against Burundi in Kakamega.
Senkatuka who has 6 goals to his name in the Azam Uganda Premier League, started the match on the bench but he was introduced in the second half to replace Taddeo Lwanga of Vipers SC.
His presence in the team put the Burundian backline on red alert as Cranes launched raid after raid but the match ended goalless.
Bright Stars FC has a strong connection in the Cranes camp in Kakamega as our head coach Fred Kajoba is in charge of the goalkeeping department while former captain Muwanga Bernard and Joseph Nsubuga are also in Kenya. The quartet of Senkatuka, Muwanga, Nsubuga and Kajoba were in Ethiopia two years ago when Uganda Cranes won the CECAFA Cup.
Uganda Cranes play again on Friday 8th Dec against South Sudan and later on Sunday with Ethiopia.
