Uganda Hippos forward Ivan Bogere has been named the football player of the month for November at the Forte Bet Real Stars Sports Monthly Awards Ceremony held at Copper Chimney, Lugogo on Wednesday.
The clinical forward beat Vipers SC captain Halid Lwaliwa and fellow Hippos teammate Isma Mugulusi to the award in the football category.
The trio was nominated after eye catching performances in November.
Bogere and Mugulusi are currently with Uganda Hippos at the ongoing 2020 CECAFA U20 Championship which also doubles as the AFCON U20 zonal qualifiers in Tanzania.
The duo have already helped Uganda qualify for their maiden AFCON U20 finals after reaching the final of the CECAFA U20.
Bogere leads the race for the golden boot at the CECAFA U20 tournament with four goals, scoring a brace against Burundi and in the semi-final against Kenya.
Bogere’s award was picked up by his mother Olivia Nakyeyune at the event.
Basketballer Jimmy Enaku and Athlete Philip Kiplimo came second and third respectively.
Uganda U17 Women National team captain Juliet Nalukenge was the previous winner when the awards were last held in March before the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.
The Real Stars Sports Awards started in 2018 and they are awarded to the outstanding players in different sports genres monthly.
