SC Villa survive relegation

Must read

Just like Express FC last season, there is always a big club that sleepwalks through the season and this time, with only one win from the opening 10 league games of the season and continuous administrative turmoil within the club, SC Villa looked like they were set for relegation.

But the 16-time record Ugandan league champions have managed to survive the red zone with one game left to play after the Ndejje University vs Onduparaka result went their way.

Possibly the worst season for the Jogoos they’ve had, having accumulated only 31 points from 29 games, for a team that came third the previous season.

SC Villa will now seek to rejuvenate themselves next season, recruit better players that will help them search for a league title they last won in 2004 under the guidance of former Uganda Cranes manager Micho.

The Jogoos will play Nyamityobora in the final game of the season on Saturday 4th May.

Ndejje University have been relegated to the second tier, Fufa Big League after just one season in top flight football having lost 1-0 to Onduparaka on Thursday afternoon. Viane Ssekajugo scored the only goal two minutes from time.

The Students have got 26 points from 29 games, which means they cannot overtake Villa, who are five points ahead of them.

KCCA FC were confirmed 2018/19 StarTimes Uganda Premier League champions and await to lift the trophy in their last game at the StarTimes stadium in Lugogo on Saturday, 4th May against Maroons.

All the three clubs that were promoted to The UPL last season, have been relegated back to the Fufa Big League; Ndejje University FC, Nyamitobora FC and Paidha Black Angels SC.
