Vipers have confirmed the acquisition of Marvin Youngman on a two-year deal as earlier reported by The-SportsNation.
The midfielder who is joining from Bright Stars FC, has been seen a possible replacement for Bobosi Byaruhanga who is reportedly going out for greener pastures abroad.
“It’s just an amazing feeling to be here at one of the biggest clubs in the country. So, I’m just happy to be here and I can’t wait to get started,” Youngman told Vipers Media.
“Once you hear that Vipers SC are interested, there’s only one thought in your mind, which is to join them and try to be in and work hard for the team. Hopefully I can help the team achieve more big things.”
Youngman was beaten by Bobosi to the Uganda Premier League midfielder of the season at the recently concluded Pilsner UPL Awards.
His rise started in 2015 after helping Kitara Region win the Airtel Rising Stars before he reached 17.
He then featured for Hima FC, Masajja Cup (with Busujju 2018 and Bulemeezi 2019) before signing for Bright Stars in October 2020 on a two-year deal.
He is the second signing at the club that previously unveiled left back Isa Mubiru from UPDF FC.
The Venoms have reportedly signed Abubaker Lawal and Lumala Abdul, pending official communication from the club.
