A strong second-half performance saved Police FC an embarrassment as they came from a goal down to beat Young Elephants 2-1 in the betPawa FUFA Big League.

The chairman had trouble explaining why the league is still struggling to attract big money but he defended himself with the two-year Covid-19 disruption.
“The last four years had been epic but unfortunately, we had the COVID-19 disruption that affected everyone, so it is difficult to rate ourselves from what we had planned to achieve,” Rugyendo told Pulse Sports.

“We want to reform and redirect the entire ecosystem at the secretariat and strengthen the marketing department. We need to bring in more money from different sources and not just rely on one sponsorship because the brand has now grown,” he promised.
