Army entity UPDF FC, have signed Goalkeeper Tonny Kyamera on a two year deal from Express Football Club in a bid to strengthen their squad upon return to the StarTimes Uganda Premier league. And the young star is extremely happy and cant wait to get started.
The 20 year old, has struggled to command a starting place in goal for the two seasons spent at Wankulukuku where he joined while still in School at Buddo SSS.
The highly rated Goalkeeper, guided Buddo Senior Secondary School to Copa Coca Cola 2018 victory when they defeated Kimanya and went ahead to win the East African School Championship in Musanze in Rwanda.
The gifted shot stopper, didn’t hide his Joy, joining a club he thinks, will be a turning point in his career.
” Am so happy joining an ambitious club like UPDF on the return to the premier league, this is a crucial move in my career, i believe this is a club that is going to help me develop more as a player in regards to the struggle have been in. I promise to give in my best for the club through hard work so that i can reach my target in Ugandan football. My heart is in love with the team already with what is happening. Kyamera told Gugudde TV.
Kyamera’s agent Tonny Mwesigwa highlighted on the reason why they picked the new comers with interest from other premier league clubs.
” It is a good opportunity for a young player like Kyamera to join UPDF, because this is just a 20 year old lad with a lot of experience and potential, so personally, i thought, it would be good for him to get first team football and develop more as a player. The UPDF project has been so attractive and they have clearly proved it that, they are back to compete not to participate basing on the signings they made before Tonny. There was interest from some other clubs, but we had it in mine that also playing was key.” He stated.
Kyamera made his Uganda premier league debut in February 2018 in a goalless draw away to Onduparaka FC.
Juma Sebaduka, crafty midfielder Gadaffi Gadinho,winger John Semazzi, former Proline captain Simon Mbazira, defender Ronnie Kisseka, Ibrahim Wamannah are some of the other players that have been signed by the club.
