Kampala International University (KIU) beach soccer Club on Saturday celebrated for winning achieving a silver medals in the just concluded National beach soccer league.
The function was at the university guild canteen where university sports boss Annet Kabasindi thanked the players for keeping the university flag up
Kabasindi noted that amidst many grievances, the club has not rested but has pushed on to make sure everything is ok.
On this note she thanked the university director of finance Janice Busingye for the continuous support rendered towards the daily expenses that they go through.
“I must thank our director of finance for not letting us down. Every time I go to her she does not give me hard time” Kabasindi noted.
She went ahead to thank the media and coaches for the work well done towards fronting the university players.
Team coach Akabwai Geoffrey said that this achievement marked a milestone that deserved to be celebrated. He however pointed out some of the challenges that they find as they play in the national beach soccer league that they are not given enough playing time on the playground due to the fact that there is always limited time.
“We are always not given enough time. To my surprise this only happened when we were playing our lfinal games” Noted Akabwai.
Akabwai advised the organizers of the league to follow the rules that they always put in place so as to curb some of these problems.
Akabwai however thanked the Uganda Beach Soccer Chairman (UBSA) Mr Deo Mutabaazi for putting up structures that have helped to reduce on a few problems which he pointed as an act of good leadership.
“If you are a good leader you must delegate work. And that is what Mr. Mutabaazi has done. I must commend him. We have a league manager, referees boss, coaches as well as many more structures” Akabwai said.
This was the first time for KIU BSC to play finals of the top league.
