Mwesigwa (FC Ordabasy – Kazakhstan) and Tonny Mawejje (IBV – Iceland) are some of the senior players Bobby said he will not consider so as to give younger players to show what they have.

The Scot, however, explained he will have “a few seniors” in the squad. Mwesigwa backs the coach’s stand and says he had a hand in it.

“After the finals in Dar in Tanzania, I told people that I think it’s high time I gave chance to the young ones to also exhibit their talent because at one time we shall get out of the team but we need replacements,” Mwesigwa told

“So I told the coach that if possible for next Cecafa they should give the little ones a chance.”

“Before that, I even explained to the coach that I have never rested football since 2003 when I joined the national team. So I told him that my body needed some rest.”

Mwesigwa’s league season will be off during the Cecafa and he plans to spend most of that time with family and to do private projects including his new soccer school in Jinja.

The skipper, who will still be involved in future international engagements for Cranes, meanwhile believes the youngsters Bobby will use next month have what it takes to defend the crown.
