Just days after naming Kefa Kisala as the new coach, newly promoted Wakiso Giants have acquired a goalkeeper.
Derrick Emukule has joined Wakiso on a three year deal, the club confirmed via their official website.
“Wakiso Giants is delighted to confirm the signing of goalkeeper Derrick Emukule from Ndejje University,” reads a statement. “Emukule signs on a three-year contract, with an option to extend for a further year.”
The 22-year old was immense for Ndejje University as they staged a late fight to stay in the top tier and was arguably the club’s best player despite them going down on the second last match day of the season.
As quoted by the club, Emukule noted:
“This is a great step in my career as a young goalkeeper. Last season was a learning process in the division and with such an ambitious club.
“I am looking forward to more development.
Being part of this project is already exciting and I will do all it takes to help the club achieve their goals.”
Emukule joins a goalkeeping cast at Wakiso Gaints that has Yasin Mugabi, Ivan Mutumba and Cleo Ssetuba.
