West Nile regional league outfit Calvary Midigo Football Club qualified to the StarTimes FUFA Big League following a 2-0 victory over Northern regional league side Northern Gateway in the regional promotion playoff final match at FUFA Technical center in Njeru.
Goals in either halves from Kassim Twalib and Jamil Asega saw the Horizon Stars beat Northern Gateway to earn sporting promotion to the 2020/21 FUFA Big league.
The Yumbe based outfit did break the deadlocked in the 2nd minute when Twalib found the back of the net for a 1-0.
Northern Gateway improved after the interval and the Engwedo’s charges came close to levelling matters in the 60th minute as Leonard Odongo was called into action.
Borin’s charges continued to dominate as they pounced to double their lead in the 72nd minute with Jamil Asega firing home the second goal.
The goal sucked all the life out of Northern Gateway as they missed out on another opportunity to win promotion to the StarTimes FUFA Big League with Calvary FC joining Luwero United (Buganda), Gaddafi (Eastern) as well as Terrazo and Tiles (Western) in the 2020/2021 FUFA Big League season.
