BIG LEAGUE Omedi on the brink of setting a new league record

Fred Mwambu 00:05 - 09.03.2023

Denis Omedi will be going for a record-breaking goal when Booma hosts Adjumani in Masindi on Thursday in the StarTimes FUFA Big League.

Booma may be struggling in the race for promotion, but their striker Omedi is outside his race for the golden boot.

Omedi has netted 19 times for the Fort Portal side to equal Edrisa Lubega's record 19 goals scored in the 2016/17 season for Proline.

The Lango Province striker has eleven more games to set his record in his first season since returning from studies.

"I want to set the records because it's every striker's dream," the jolly and calm officer attached to the Uganda Prisons told Pulse Sports.

The trained nurse also added: "But most importantly, I want to push the team and see if we can catch up and gain promotion."

And where else to set that record other than at home against one of the poorest defence in the league, Adjumani?

Booma will host the bottom-placed Yumbe side on Thursday as they seek to keep the chasing pack at arm's distance.

The team is currently in fifth place but trailing Mbarara City in fourth place by nine points.

"We had some targets as a team at the beginning and still believe we can achieve because we're determined to do that collectively," he adds.
