New URA attacking midfielder Nicholas Kabonge has vowed to bring back the lost glory at the Tax Collectors.
Kabonge was officially unveiled as a URA player on Friday this week penning a two year’s contract.
He joined the side as a free agent following expiry of his contract at SC Villa last year and he has been out of action for the first round.
In his first interview at the club, the former SC Villa midfielder first expressed his delight for Joining the Tax men.
“I feel happy to join URA FC and I want my stay to count, he told the club’s media on Friday.
On his arrival, Kabonge finds URA in a poor state as they have struggled since the Start of the season in the Uganda premier League.
Currently, they are currently on 14 points in the 11th position and are 15 points below leaders KCCA.
But despite the poor start, Kabonge is still hopeful that things will turn around for them.
“I am aware the club didn’t perform well in the first round. And I want to work with my teammates to bring back the team where it belongs”
At URA, Kabonge is the third signing in this January transfer window after striker Bruno Bunyaga and Joshua Lubwama who joined the side recently.
This season, URA have struggled in terms of goals given the absence of their star man in midfield Shafik Kagimu, who was left out of the team since the start of the season.
And Kabonge’s arrival will be a big boost in terms of the team’s creativity as they seek to bounce back in the second round that gets underway in February this year.
