St. Lawrence University and Buddu striker Bruno Bunyaga has been crowned the footballer of the month for September at the Fortbet Real Stars Awards.
Bunyaga was rewarded following his brilliant performance in the Pepsi University Football League and Masaza Cup.
He scored a hat-trick as St. Lawrence defeated Kampala University 4-0 in the second leg of the UFL quarterfinals to advance to the semifinals 5-1 on aggregate.
His lone strike against Mawokota in the first leg was enough for Masaza Cup defending champions Buddu to reach the semifinals 1-0 on aggregate following a goalless draw in the second leg.
Bunyaga won the accolade at the expense of his teammate Blanchar Mulumba and Sand Cranes’ Ambrose Kigozi.
Athletics, basketball, and cricket were the other categories that were recognized at the awarding ceremony held at Route256 Restaurant in Lugogo on Tuesday.
Jacob Kiplimo, Brenda Ekone, and Riazat Ali Shah were awarded in athletics, basketball, and cricket respectively.
