In-form strikers Geoffrey Sserunkuma and Derrick Nsibambi were on target as KCCA FC beat Fufa Big League side, Paidha Black Angels FC 2-0 in the final of the 2017 Uganda Cup played at the Greenlight Stadium in Arua on Thursday.

Coach Mike Hillary Mutebi’s side have now won a double on the local scene as they also retained the Azam Uganda Premier League title.

The game was also graced by the Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) was also graced by club patron Lord Mayor, Erias Lukwago and KCCA Executive Director, Dr. Jennifer S Musisi.

Sserunkuma who was also top scorer in the league and netted the Cranes goal in the 1-0 win over Cape Verde last weekend in a 2019 Afcon qualifier was on target after 10 minutes. He made sure he gave the disjointed defenders no chance.

The Zombo based team fought back strongly and should have leveled matters, but the KCCA FC goalkeeper Benjamin Ochan was up to the task.

Later in the second half Nsibambi controlled a long Denis Okot cross and scored after 12 minutes. The Paidha Black Angels team with the likes of Fred Omeko, Emma Rubanyakene and Brian Okumu tried to fight back but failed to score.

“We have worked hard in the season and now we remain focusing on the CAF Total Confederations Cup,” added the skipper Okot.

KCCA FC is placed second in Group A of the CAF Total Confederations Cup behind Morocco’s FUS Rabat. They will travel to face Nigeria’s Rivers United on June 20th.
