NB: 1 more loss than win; odd number of draws; total
    goal difference -2

NB: Uganda Grain Milling (apparently new name for Millers)
    withdrew for 1985; reason for Masaka's demotion unclear

Second Level 

Results from September 1984
Nsambya FC     18-0 Wembley Reunion
Nsambya FC      1-0 Spear Motors 
Nsambya FC      awd Foods FC [awarded 2-0 to Nsyamba after Foods dns]

NB: Nsambya had to win their remaining 3 league matches with a total
    goal difference of +20 in order to overtake Cooperative and 
    qualify for the next stage (presumably this refers to the second
    level league and/or a promotion competition), and managed to do
    so thanks to fixing that 18-0 against Wembley; both Nsambya and
    Cooperative finished their program with 66 points.
    Nsambya FC beat State House 2-1 in promotion playoffs

Promoted: Nsambya Old Timers, Bank of Uganda, Tobacco (Bugembe)

1985

    total goal difference +3 

Final Rounds included:
Airlines        1-0 KCC
Tobacco        12-0 Airlines

NB: thanks to Tobacco's final round win of 12-0 they dislodged Coffee
    from 2nd place; Tobacco apparently later demoted in connection
    with this

In promotion play-offs, KK Cosmos scored 6 goals in 25 minutes against
Gomba Motors, leading to crowd trouble by Mbarara United fans

Promoted: Blue Bats

1987

Final Table:

 1.SC Villa               22  17  5  0  56-13  39

12.Maroons FC             22   1  4 17  13-54   6  Relegated

NB: total goal difference -9

NB: remaining matches apparently not played;
    one of Blue Bats and Buikwe may have been renamed BN United
    before the 1989 season

1988

NB: the FUFA site lists identical tables for 1988 and 1989
    (just that Coffee's record is missing in the 1988 standings);
    possibly only one season was played; it is assumed that the
    corresponding table belongs to the 1989 season.

Top Final Table:

 1.SC Villa               
 2.Express Red Eagles     
Other participants reportedly included:
   Kampala City Council 
   Nsambya Old Timers   
   Coffee SC
   Airlines
   Nile Breweries 
   Tobacco (Bugembe) (?!)
   State House
   UCI (?!)

NB: if the above is correct, State House, Tobacco (Bugembe) 
    and UCI appear to have been relegated while Mbale Heroes
    presumably earned promotion

11.Resistance             22   2  5 15  12-41   9  Relegated

NB: 4 more wins than losses; odd number of matches and draws;
    total goal difference +9; apparently record of
    one club (finishing 8th) missing

Promoted: Entebbe Works FC, Bell FC, Nytil and Busia (one
          of these presumably is the missing club above)

1991

NB: season not finished, but as more than 75% of matches
    were played, ranking at abandonment was declared final.

Final Table:

 1.Kampala City Council   19  16  3  0  44-11  35
