He requests for fan support since the coming match is tricky, the last one and the only block on their way to Kitara region playoffs.

Eng Julius Ahuura, the President of Buhimba Utd Saints FC, says the club needs more financial support since the level they are heading to needs a lot of funds to run, thus, need for joint efforts.

“We want more support both financially and on the pitch because where the team is heading to needs joint efforts to mobilise enough funds that can run the club because when it qualifies, it will need to buy more experienced players and other requirements.”

The Albert group game will end on June 10 and the last match will determine who will qualify for Kitara regional league playoffs.
