The First Round of the 2022/23 Uganda Premier League season came to a conclusion with KCCA FC topping proceedings with 29 points two ahead of runners-up BUL FC.

As a number of teams are continuing to chase their seasonal ambitions, there’s been a number of individual stars that have shone for the better bits of the half campaign.

Nnalubaale Sports presents the ten best players thus far.

10. Grant Matsiko (Wakiso Giants)

The right-back has been one of the most consistent players in the league, and has been a pillar to Wakiso Giants’ superb campaign so far.

He has been brilliant in attack and stout in defence. The best right-back in the league at the moment.

09. Alfred Macumu Mudekereza (Vipers SC)

The Congolese-born custodian has been one of the few brilliant sparks at Kitende, coming up with big saves on several occasions and conceding just three goals in 11 games.

He has been the best signing by Vipers SC this season, and one of the finest in the league.

08. Geoffrey Wasswa (KCCA FC)

The center-back has been one of the most important players in KCCA FC’s lead to the title chase.

After missing last season due to injury, his return has been strong and he’s among the best defenders in the league, at the moment.

07. Hillary Mukundane (Vipers SC)


He has been the base for the League’s meanest defence, conceding just five in 14 matches throughout the First Round.

Mukundane has been consistently strong and dominant, putting in Man of the Match performances game in game out.

06. Fred Amaku (Maroons FC)

The Maroons FC forward has been a leader, he has always come up with goals severally, garnering seven in the first round.

With game winning goals, he is the joint top-scorer along with Bright Stars marksman Nelson Senkatuka.

05. Allan Okello (KCCA FC)

The loanee returned to the MTN Omondi Stadium, Lugogo and started off where he left since leaving two years ago to Algerian outfit Paradou.

He has been brilliant throughout, netting four times with three assists plus giving defenders endless nightmares.

04. Hassan Ssenyonjo (Wakiso Giants FC)

The Wakiso Giants FC captain has been one of the best players in the campaign, and remains one of the most underrated stars at the moment.

He has been a true leader, yet his playmaking attributes have been on full show throughout the First Round.

03. Karim Ndugwa (BUL FC)

Ageing like fine wine, Karim Ndugwa, the scorer of the first league goal is a consistently dangerous presence on the pitch.

In a superb season for BUL as they sit second, Ndugwa has racked up seven goals and, he’s their most important player.

02. Nelson Senkatuka (Soltilo Bright Stars)

Seven goals and four assists make him the player with the most goal contributions in the First Round.

This season, Senkatuka has always showed up, and was rewarded with a call up to the national team for the African Nations Championships (CHAN).

01. Ibrahim Owen Kasule ‘Baba’ (Wakiso Giants)

By far, Kasule has been the best player in the league. Fleet-footed, playmaker, goal scorer and an entertainer, the 22 year-old has done it all and more.

He has racked up five goals and as many assists in a first half of the season to remember.
