Bobby names team ahead of cecafa, drops senior players

Cranes coach Bobby Williamson has named a team of 30 young stars to participate in the forthcoming Cecafa competition.

 Bobby has insisted Uganda have been unfortunate in Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers but dismisses talk that Cecafa no longer carries weight, which is the debate in some quarters. "The Cecafa Cup has been great for us," said the Scot, "Because it has helped us develop players like Walusimbi (Godfrey) and other guys. So it is an important competition.

"There are a lot of talented footballers coming through and the Cecafa will be an opportunity to see if they take it up. We’ll find out how it goes over the next month."

Bobby, who was due to announce his squad for the tournament yesterday, expounded on his decision to leave in some seniors. "We’ve got to get the balance," he said, "And the only way young players get professional is learn from these experienced players. As a result you’ve got to get the balance right."

Skipper Andrew Mwesigwa and midfielder Tonny Mawejje are some of the seniors Bobby said will not be considered for this year’s edition so as to give younger players a chance.

"Andrew will not be considered for this one but when the big games (qualifiers) come around, he will be called, and so is Tonny." The regional tournament is due November 24 to December 8 at Namboole.
