Despite olsing the game, head coach Fred Kajoba believes his side had the best performance on the pitch and he was able to observe the abilities of his new players ahead of 2018-2019 season.

‘These friendlies help me to try out our players. KCCA FC is the best opposition to test our team since they are competing on the continent. We had the best challenge and we examined the ability of our players during these matches. We shall have many other build-up matches to shape up and strengthen our players’ mental and physical ability before the season starts’ said Coach Kajoba.

Bright Stars FC had some Uganda Cranes players Murushid Juuko, Aucho Khalid, Joseph Ochaya and Yassar Mugerwa.
