Dennis Onyango’s quest for regular football could come to fruition after the Ugandan international goalkeeper secured a loan move to Premier Soccer League (PSL) side Bidvest Wits University from Mamelodi Sundowns.

Without necessarily losing out to their talented shot-stopper completely, Sundowns are trying to cut down the numbers of their bulging squad by loaning rather selling, 22-year-old Abel Mabaso being the other on the long list of players to have been loaned out.

Sundowns’ official website confirmed: “Striker Edward Manqele has joined Moroka Swallows on a one year loan deal, while goalkeeper Dennis Onyango has also joined Bidvest Wits also on a loan deal.

“Young defender Abel Mabaso has also completed a one year loan move to PSL (Premier Soccer League) returnees, Mpumalanga Black Aces. He joins fellow defender Method Mwanjale and midfielder Themba Zwane.”

Onyango has struggled to get playing time and with the arrival of Zambian goalkeeper Kennedy Mwene, in addition to two other senior stars, it was difficult to have three international shot-stoppers on the bench.

The news is music to the ears for Uganda as Onyango could have put some games under his belt before Cranes must-win Group J world Cup qualifier against Senegal on September 7.

Captain Nampijja scored the winner-takes-it-all strike in the ninth minute of the 12-minute first half.

With a large number of Tanzanian fans cheering, Uganda held on in the second half with goalkeeper Karungi pulling off a couple of saves to guide Uganda to victory.

“We are happy to bring this trophy home,” said winning captain Nampijja after receiving the trophy from tournament ambassador Samuel Eto’o. The team will travel with former Cameroonian forward Eto’o to FC Barcelona’s home -Camp Nou.

Speaking about the women’s side triumph, Nile Special brand manager Francis Nyende was ecstatic and visibly in shock at the result.

“This Uganda’s inaugural participation in this tournament, and we have won the trophy! This is unbelievable. Kudos to the girls who have given it their everything. As a brand heavily involved in sports, we hope this victory will inspire more ladies to play this game,” said Nyende.

The team had beaten pre-tournament favourites South Africa 2-1 via a shootout where Karungi saved two penalties following a goalless draw.

In the quarterfinals, Uganda comfortably beat Ghana 3-0 with Nantumbwe striking twice. Uganda had beaten Zimbabwe 2-1, had a 1-1 draw with Tanzania A before losing to Swaziland 1-0 in Group A on Friday.

In the men’s category, Uganda was unlucky to be ejected after conceding a goal. Represented by Facebook FC franchise, which won the Nile Special 5-A-Side competition finals, Uganda beat Swaziland 5-0, Zimbabwe 1-0 and Tanzania 1-0 to top Group A on Friday but on Saturday, they lost to Group B bottom team Zambia 2-1 via penalties following a 0-0 stalemate.
