Onduparaka sign four new players days after they had signed two players in forward Kubo Brian and Centre back Geriga Humuza. The four new players that were brought in are Ssenkaayi Emmanuel, Kyeline Meddi, Mukiibi Alli and Yakubu Ramadhan.
According to the team head coach Villai Bainomugisha, the new players will add a spark to the already existing squad that
won two games, lost one to KCCA and picked
two draws as well.
This is the continuation of the first round for
2020-21 StarTimes Uganda Premier League. There are four matches lined on the opening round of match day 6 in Arua,
Kampala, Jinja and Mbarara cities. It comes after a break that was called to allow the Uganda Cranes prepare and take
part in the 2020 Championship of African Nations (CHAN) in Cameroon.
In the West Nile region, home side Onduparaka entertains win-less Busoga United at the rebranded AbaBet Green Light
The game is envisaged as a duel that they must win as
they build the momentum into the season according to the Catarpillars’ head coach Vialli Bainomugisha
“This is one match that we need badly. First, the league has been on a break and we need to return very strong with
statement of a victory” Bainomugisha who
added 12 players to his side in the January
Onduparaka also added goalkeeper Tonny
Kyamera, striker Muhammed Kyaliime, midfielder Muzamiru Nasser, central defender Yakubu Ramadhan, left back Hakim Magombe, David Owundo, Ali “Okocha” Mukiibi and Naijib Gwaibu to the existing squad and other four players mentioned above ashey head to the remaining matches of the first round.
According to Bainomugisha, the new players will add a spark to the already existing squad that won two games, lost one to KCCA and picked two draws as well.
In Busoga United, they face a side that is yet to win any game in five outings, four losses and one draw (with
Kyetume). Busoga United just like Onduparaka also made
crucial additions to their team as defensive
midfielder Elvis Ngonde, left back George
William Kalyowa, Ibrahim Ekellot, offensive
midfield duo of Benard Wamusi and Bryon
Benda as well as forwards Isaac Wagoina
and Shaka Ssozi.
The contest is of equal significance to the
two sides as Busoga United seeks for their
first win of the campaign and Onduparaka
shall be targeting the third to keep track
with the rest of the clubs in contention.
The Arua based side is fresh from a
contract extension with MTN Uganda as
well as the main shirt sponsor, AbaBet; a
feat looked at as a motivational tool to the
playing and technical staff.
