Lugazi goalkeeper Fahad Emuran has received the 2023/24 BetPawa FUFA Bigl League Golden Glove, claiming the prize in his first season with the Leaders.

In his debut season with the club, Emuran’s outstanding performances have earned him this accolade, making him the first goalkeeper in our club’s history to achieve this honour.

He kept an impressive 13 clean sheets in the league this season, eclipsing all his peers while showcasing his exceptional skills and consistency.

The former Kibuli SS goalkeeper’s contributions have been pivotal in our successful promotion campaign to the StarTimes Uganda Premier League.

The accolade was presented to Emuran at FUFA House in Mengo by the FUFA Executive Secretary of Football Development.

Lugazi FC interim coach Gerald Efiti described the accolade as the symbol of teamwork and cohesion exhibited throughout the team, but epitomised by the goalkeeper.

“Emuran’s Golden Glove award is a proud moment for Lugazi FC,” he told the club’s media.

“His dedication, hard work, and exceptional talent have brought us to new heights.”

“This award is not just a personal achievement for Fahad but a reflection of the spirit and determination of the entire team.”

“We are immensely proud and look forward to more success in the future,” he added.

Since joining Lugazi FC at the start of the season, Emuran has become an indispensable part of our well-oiled defensive mechanism.

His commanding presence, sharp reflexes, and leadership at the back have been crucial in our matches.

Emuran kept his 12th clean sheet of the season in our final home game of the season, against Kaaro Karungi – the same occasion we confirmed promotion – confirming his achievement.

He would extend the record to 13 clean sheets for the season in our final game of the season against Jinja North, which we won 2-0, while coming short of winning the title.

Congratulations, Fahad Emuran! Your Golden Glove is a symbol of your excellence and a beacon of inspiration for all of us at Lugazi FC.
