Cranes to start camp on Saturday



Reigning Tusker Cecafa Cup champions Uganda begin residential training on Saturday as preparations for the upcoming tournament shift gear.

Twenty-five players will enter camp at the luxurious Rivonia Suites in Mbuya, a Kampala suburb, on Saturday evening.

The new accommodation arrangement is facilitated by the Uganda Cranes Initiative (UCI), a fan group looking to help improve the welfare of the national team.

Before moving to the hotel, the team will first interact with fans in a special training session at KCCA’s Lugogo Ground from 9am to 1pm the same day.

Children will also be allowed to challenge the Cranes players with their skills in a special session.

Meanwhile, strikers Emmanuel Okwi (Simba - Tz) and Hamis Kiiza (Yanga), plus St George defender Isaac Isinde are expected in country this weekend.

Asante Kotoko’s (Ghana) Joseph Ochaya is due in on Monday while AIK Stockholm stylish forward Martin Kayongo Mutumba is expected in Kampala on Tuesday.
