Ronald Ssempala has been voted our Fans Player of the month for May after receiving the most votes from a poll voted for by our supporters.

Our centre forward enjoyed an incredible month on and off the field, being a huge influence as Lugazi FC secured their first ever promotion to the StarTimes Uganda Premier League.

And Ssempala’s efforts saw 35 per cent of the Lugazi fans select him as the most worthy recipient of the final monthly accolade of the season, in what was a close poll that included Ali Bayo and Richard Ayiko.

Goalkeeper Fahad Emuran who conceded just one goal and kept three clean sheets was the second favourite pick in the poll, amassing 30 per cent of the votes.

Right back Lubega Muhammad winner of the award in March, came third in the votes, picking 20 per cent of the votes, but ultimately Ssempala’s run of scoring in three consecutive games eclipsed them all.

Ssempala scored the club’s only hattrick this season in the 4-1 victory over Young Elephants, adding on to goals against Kigezi HombeBoyz and Kaaro Karungi.

His second and ultimately the winner against Kaaro Karungi secured the historic moment of promotion to the top flight for the first time in the club’s history.

It is the first time in his career with the Leaders that Ssempala has been bestowed the club honour, following on from Richard Matovu who won the award in April.
