URA FC coach Sam Ssimbwa has been awarded a Pilsner coach of the month for a third time in his time at the club after his side won all five of their matches in March.
Ssimbwa’s men recorded victories over UPDF, Kyetume, Police, Vipers and Onduparaka as they continued their chase for their fourth league title and first since 2011.
URA were impeccable in the month, scoring 10 times and conceding just two goals.
The Tax Collectors’ boss also won the award in April 2019 – going on to show class by dedicating it to his mother while collecting the award – as well as in January 2020.
Ssimbwa topped a three-man shortlist that included Express’ Wasswa Bbosa and Busoga United’s Abbey Kikomeko.
Elsewhere, KCCA striker Sadat Anaku’s six goals for his club were enough to earn him the Player of the Month award in the players’ category.
Anaku bagged a hat-trick – his first for the season – in their 4-0 win over Busoga United and was at it again scoring a brace against UPDF.
Anaku who only returned from a lengthy injury lay off beat league top scorer Steven Mukwala who scored six goals and provided one assist for URA.
Busoga United’s Shaka Ssozi was the other nominee in the players’ category.
KCCA striker Sadat Anaku and Sam Simbwa have won the Pilsner March awards for player and coach respectively.
Sadat Anaku netted six times in five games in March to beat off strong competition from URA’s Steven Mukwala and Busoga United’s Ssozi Shaka.
Mukwala was directly involved in six goals out of URA’s ten, scoring five times and an assist to extend his goal scoring tally to a double figures while Ssozi netted thrice for Busoga United in March.
Meanwhile, Simbwa guided the tax collectors to table summit after five wins in five games. His side conceded only once and scored ten times which gave an average of two goals scored per game.
Both Anaku and Simbwa walked away with a token of 1 million shillings each.
