SC Villa head coach Jackson Magera was voted the coach of the month of February and March at the monthly Pilsner StarTimes Uganda Premier League awards. The ceremony was held at Kati Kati Restaurant on Wednesday evening.
To win the award, Magera beat URA’s Sam Timbe and Maroons tactician Muhammad Ssenfuma.
During the month of March, Magera ensured Villa were unbeaten only dropping points to Gaddafi FC in Jinja. The sixteen-time champions beat Onduparaka, Express, BUL and Busoga United in the said period.
The Jogoos have 40 points, three ahead of second-placed KCCA at this point in the season.
The best player accolade for the said period went to Maroons goalkeeper, Simon Tamale.
Tamale was exceptional for Maroons in-between the sticks, conceding only once in the four matches they played in February and March.
For Tamale, he fended off competition from Express FC forward Allan Kayiwa and Arua Hill SC youngstar Innocent Media.
The StarTimes Uganda Premier League awards are held at the start of every month.
