University Football League: Makerere Docked Six Points


The University Football League of the University Football League has docked six points and as many goals from Makerere University.

This follows the ugly scenes in their game against YMCA in May this year.

Then, the game was suspended after rowdy Makerere fans stormed the pitch when YMCA completed their 2-1 comeback.

John Ndugu headed in the second goal for YMCA, and all hell broke loose when MUK students stormed the pitch and missiles and running battles ensued.

The game had earlier seen stoppages – Even before kickoff, Makerere students entered the pitch to watch their side warm up from close range.

They also uprooted YMCA sign-post on their way out of Buwambo when Police was forced to fire tear gas!
