Sam featured in the first round with a provisional license and has not played a game in the second round because he did not have all the requirements needed for a player to get a full League license from FUFA.

Ssenyonjo has scored three goals in four games for KCCA FC this term. The three goals were scored against Kyetume, Mbarara City and Proline.

The teenager did not score against SC Villa but had three assists in that game.

Ssenyonjo spoke to the club website after he got his league license, and had this to say;

I am happy that I can now play. It has been a frustrating time for me. I have been training but could not play for my club even when I knew I would have done something good for the club.

I want to keep pushing to my ultimate best and learn from the players and coaches at the club. I can not wait to go again.
