Kampala- SC Villa triumph in majestic style with a 3-0 demolition of fierce rivals KCC FC to win the 2015 Uganda Cup title at Namboole stadium, Tuesday evening.

The feeling that engrossed Villa fans last evening when their team won a replayed Cup final to secure theirfirst title in six years and 9th Cup title as they ensured a return on the continent scene.

“I congratulate the players, they played well, with a high tempo game and surely deserved this (Cup) title,” said Ibrahim Kirya, who was also named the best coach of this year’s Uganda Cup.

The Jogoo swept KCC aside with a swashbuckling display sparked by Augustine Nsumba’s first half header and a sublime strike from Abdul-Karim Kasule plus a Waibi Jether powerful shot from a free kick after the interval.

KCC looked brunt going forward and lost for creativity playing without suspended Hakim Senkumba, Owen Kasule, Joseph Ochaya and Yasin Mugabi and injuried Francis Olaki, Savio Kabugo and Ronnie Kisekka.

“It was always going to be hard without them, but those that played did compete fairly well” said KCC coach Abdallah Mubiru.

Villa striker Erisa Sekisambu was named best player of the tournament, while the club took Shs2.5million as Cup winners.

For Villa, even as the merry-making over-rides the feeling of relief that the Villa fraternity has at this juncture, the focus will shift to how this success can be built on, in order for the club to enjoy a sustainable run in the CAF Confederations Cup in 2016.
