Former Busoga United Captain Joins Big league

Former Busoga United captain Derrick Basoga has joined Big league side Jinja North United FC on a six month renewable contract.

Basoga signs after ending his stay at Busoga United, a side he captained at the start of the 2022/23 season before passing the armband to Isaac Isinde prior to half way of the first round.

The defensive midfielder who spent one and half season at Busoga, joined from MYDA.

But he fell in the pecking order after new coach Vincent Lukyamuzi’s arrival, he didn’t even appear on the bench for a couple last matches of first round and it’s not a surprise that he is among the six players released by the club prior to the resumption of the UPL.

Other players released by the club include; Franco Balabala, Niwamanya Dickson, Andrew Seekandi, Dan Ssewava, Sanon Mulabi.

Talking to The-SportsNation on why he decided to trade his services to second division tier, he said Jinja North is his mother club and he wanted to feel happy playing.

“Football is all about playing when you are happy bro and the situation at my former was not in my favour,” Basoga stated.

“I don’t regret anything leaving UPL to Big league being the fact that it’s my mother club. and I believe the service have been doing to this club can do it to my mother club.”

Basoga finds Jinja North United in six position after ending the FUFA Big League First round with 20 points, and 10 points adrift of promotion slots back to UPL.

Away from MYDA and Busoga United, the experienced midfielder started his football journey at Education Athletics Academy before joining Jinja Municipal Council.
