Maroons FC custodian Simon Tamale has been awarded the Real Stars award for Footballer of the Month.

Tamale was named outstanding footballer for May, beating Kitara FC star Paul Mucureezi and Vipers SC skipper Milton Karisa.

The aforementioned developments happened on Tuesday at a ceremony hosted by Lazio restaurant in Kampala.

He kept four clean sheets in as many matches in the final bend of the Uganda Premier League.

Simon Tamale kicked off all the threats against SC Villa, with Maroons beating them 1-0, didn’t concede against Gaddafi FC (0-0).

He managed the same against Onduparaka FC (1-0) before locking out BUL FC in the last game of the season, which ended in a barren stalemate.

The four shutouts for the month took him to 12 for the season, the most by any goalkeeper in the topflight.

Tamale also picked three Man of the Match awards against Villa, Gaddafi and Onduparaka, making it seven accolades of the kind for the season.

Meanwhile, his competitors were also superb, with Karisa guiding Vipers SC to a sixth league title, while Mucureezi led Kitara back to the Uganda Premier League.

Best of May:

Football – Simon Tamale (Maroons FC)
Basketball – Rose Amaniyo (SMASK, KIU Rangers)
Rugby – Ivan Magomu (Pirates)
Netball – Gloria Aya (St Noa and NIC)
Rally – Yasin Nasser
