•KCCA FC 2-0 Kakamega Homeboyz

Uganda Premier League side KCCA FC beat Kenya’s Kakamega Homeboyz 2-0 in a friendly game played at the Omondi Stadium, Lugogo.

Goals each from Arafat Usama and new KCCA FC Captain Julius Poloto were all KCCA needed to claim maximum points.

It was an eventful day for KCCA who celebrated their existence and unveiled their season squad including new signings, with Singer Spice Diana entertaining fans.

The much-changed KCCA had four foreign players in the starting eleven, before the coach made overhaul changes at halftime.

Moses Waiswa came on for new signing Joel Sserunjogi before halftime.

Usama gave KCCA at the 29th minute mark after tapping from a long drive by Adilson Bruno.

Hillary Othieno came close to equalising for the Visitors but couldn’t go past ball-playing goalkeeper Anthony Emojong.

Lanky Brazilian forward Vinicuis Micheal nearly doubled the lead for KCCA FC but his header was easily saved.

With just seven minutes remaining on clock, Poloto doubled KCCA FC’s lead heading in from a well delivered Haruna Lukwago cross.

Traguil and KCCA now turn focus to the FUFA Super 8 on Tuesday when they face to Wakiso Giants who are hosting the game at Lugogo.
