Following his recent success at the Caf awards last week, Cranes goalkeeper Denis Onyango was on Monday voted 2016 best footballer by the Uganda Sports Press Association (Uspa).
Among others, he will be vying for the overall sports personality of the year gong during the Uspa gala later this year.
The other nominees for Sports Personality of the Year are paralypian David Emong and rugby player Phillip Wokorach.
The Cranes, who also won the Caf Team of the Year accolade last week, have been nominated too for the Uspa gong. They face competition from the Rugby Cranes and basketball league champions, City Oilers.
In the Sports Event of the Year category, nominees include National Open Pool Championship and Uganda Golf Open. There are individual winners, female and male, in each sport discipline.
