Maroons’ Walusimbi determined to achieve goal target

Maroons forward Solomon Walusimbi says it’s been a good season for him, but to turn it into an awesome campaign; he must accomplish the 12- goal target he set at the beginning of the season.

Walusimbi set a 12-goal target at the start of the campaign despite being tasked to score only six goals by his coach Asaph Mwebaze when he joined the club early this season.

With two games remaining to the end of regular season, the forward is three goals away from attaining his objective.

Walusimbi said: “It’s been a good season for me although the game we played against Ndejje University made me feel so bad. I felt bad losing that game, but all in all, it’s been good.

“I’m now focusing on the remaining games. I haven’t achieved my aim of 12 goals so I still have a lot to do. I still have three more goals to go and I’m working upon achieving that

“I have scored some crucial goals for the team which makes me happy, but I want to reach that mark and if I do, it will be a fantastic season for me because it’s my first time to play league football and also when I joined the club, the coach asked me to score only 6 goals.”

The “assassin” as referred to by Maroons’ CEO Innocent Oguda because of his acuity and efficiency upfront had gone a month plus without seeing the back of the net.

He scored his ninth goal of the campaign on Thursday in their 4-1 victory over Sporting United in the FUFA Big League.

Walusimbi and his side welcome Kyambogo to Luzira Prisons ground next week on Saturday looking to seal their automatic promotion to the Uganda Premier League. Maroons need just a point to earn direct promotion to top flight.
