AFRICA CRICKET CLUB - OLDEST CRICKET CLUB IN UGANDA

Africa Cricket Club commonly known as ACC is the oldest cricket club in the country. The club was formed in the 1930's by the late Prince George Mawanda who was a prolific all-rounder and elite batsman. There is a story that the Prince was the 1st indigenous player to hit a six into Jinja Road out of Lugogo. Caxton Njuki is one of the founding players of the club. 

The club was formed when Africans played annually against the Europeans/Indians/Goans and Muslims(mainly from Pakistan). It was the only indigenous side against expatriate teams which placed ACC in a special category although it was the only "poor” club without facilities.

Notable long time ACC players include John Nagenda, AKPM Lutaaya, Junior Kwebiiha, Late Charles Lwanga and Arthur Ssemwogerere.

ACC has won the league title a couple of times and there last success was in 2005 under the leadership of Junior Kwebiiha. 

In 2017 ACC signed a sponsorship deal with HIMA CEMENT who has are the main sponsors of the Club.
