Uganda Police Football Club forward Ben Ocen has been nominated for the upcoming Pilsner monthly awards scheduled for early next week.
The live wire striker’s nomination follows his stellar show in April scoring five goals in six games and grabbing one man of the match accolade.
Ocen scored one goal as Police cruised past Kyetume (0-3) at the FUFA Technical Center, Njeru in the Uganda Premier League return leg to complete a double over the Slaughters.
He was again on the score sheet as Police walloped league newcomers Kitara (4-1) coming from the bench to score a brace for Abdallah Mubiru’s coached side.
The forward also scored another brace in a 6-1 emphatic win over Malabba Youth Development Association Football Club (MYDA FC) taking his tally to eleven goals as Police sits in the 4th (37 points).
Ocen will battle with Soltilo Bright Stars’ Samuel Kayongo Sekamatte who is another nominee in the players’ category. The awards are tentatively planned for Monday morning at Kati Kati restaurant in Lugogo.
