KCCA FC pair of coach Morley Byekwaso and striker Davis Kasirye have been named the best of October at the Pilsner UPL awards at Kati Kati.
Byekwaso beat Vipers gaffer Roberto Oliveira for best Coach of October after helping his side to four wins from as many.
KCCA FC beat Wakiso Giants (3-0), Gaddafi FC (2-1), Busoga United (1-0) and Tooro United (2-0).
“Its my first time to receive this award,” said Byekwaso who is in his first full season at KCCA FC. “It is not an easy milestone. This is a reflection of what we did last month and we will continue working hard.”
Robertinho’s Vipers won two and drew one in their three league games in October.
For the Pilsner player of the Month of October, Kasirye beat KCCA FC teammate Benjamin Ochan and Vipers target-man Caesar Manzoki.
Kasirye scored three goals in the four league games he played – He scored one each against Wakiso Giants, Gaddafi and Tooro United.
“I am humbled to have this award, it has been a challenge since I came back. I give credit to the gaffer (Byekwaso) for the chance he has rendered to me. This will push me hard because I want to win more of these.”
Kasirye was not a popular choice when Byekwaso signed him this season and the striker’s effort this season has already impressed the gaffer and proved many doubters wrong.
Byekwaso said: “Kasirye has experience and he is a good striker. He knows what he is doing and I hope he continues to shine.”
UPL Manager Paul Kabaikaramu said that it was a tight contest to choose the best player of the month.
Edgar Kihumuro, Pilsner Brand Manager, noted: “We want to thank UPL for allowing to partner with us. Allow me to commend the players and coaches for waking up each day to put in the efforts. As we promised earlier about awarding the fans, I would like to inform you that our fan of the month is Rogers Wandera who passed our predictions challenge.”
