BUL FC forward Robert Mukongotya and Vipers head coach Edward Golola have been named Pilsner Uganda Premier League player and manager for the month of October 2019 respectively.
The second UPL monthly awards for this season took place today morning at Kati Kati Restaurant off Logogo By-Pass in Kampala.
Golola beat off competition from BUL FC coach Peter Onen and Busoga United coach Abbey Kikomeko and remains the only unbeaten side this season. In October, Vipers played seven games, winning five and drawing two.
Mukongotya beat Vipers talisman Fahad Bayo in a tight race after both strikers scored four goals in October.
Both Golola and Mukongotya walked away with a reward of one million Ugandan shillings each.
