UCTF members are sent to a select group of high-quality boarding schools. One of these is Mukono Parents. Over the last seven years, we have developed a great relationship with Mukono Parents; at the time of writing there are 18 UCTF members studying there. It means a lot to us when the school succeeds - both in the classroom and on the sports field. 

So we are pleased to report that the Mukono Parents cricket team, featuring no less than eight UCTF members, recently brought home the Pepsi Schools Cricket Week title. The members on show were Lawrence Ssempijja (c), Simon Ssesazi, Derrick Bakunzi, Paul Sekandi, Mugisha Bwogere, Emmanuel Masereka, Innocent Mbabali and Gerald Mubiru. Mukono Parents stormed to the title, knocking off Jinja SS by 53 runs in the final, and very much deserved their crown as national champions. Man of the Tournament was awarded to Simon Ssesazi, and Best Batsman to Derrick Bakunzi. All in all, another glorious sporting day for UCTF!
