Pajule Lions FC made a remarkable milestone this season, being the only 3rd division side to reach the semi final of the Stanbic Uganda Cup before being ditched out of the tournament by the Uganda Premier League giant Kitara FC 4-1 on aggregate in a two legged tie.

It takes dedication and hard work to compete at a high level, especially coming from a relegation the previous season.
