Goalkeeper Yusuf Wasswa Set for UPDF Return

URA Goalkeeper Wasswa Yusuf is highly linked with a possible return to Uganda Premier League side UPDF FC.

Wasswa left UPDF in 2022 and joined URA FC as a free agent.

Upon successful trials with the tax collectors, Wasswa signed a two years employment contract.

The former Onduparaka Custodian faced stiff competition for a starting place with Skipper Nafian Alionzi and Hannington Ssebwalunyo who both proved ahead of him in the pecking order.

Wasswa has been training with UPDF at the Bombo Barracks Ground after opening talks about a possible return.

According to reports, the Goalkeeper requested for Sh15M sign-on fee.

The Army side lost a number of players including Ibrahim Magandaazi, Luwalo Kipper, Sabir Yasin and Shafiq Magogo who all joined Kitara FC while captain Ibrahim Wammanah crossed to URA.

Ivan Ahimbisibwe, Samson Kasozi, Kyeyune Abasi and Okello Donato have all left the club after the expiry of their contracts.

They also lost Head Coach Brian Ssenyondo who joined Kitara FC and was since replaced by Pius Ngabo.

The Bombo based side have signed Goalkeeper Okidi Jimmy from Young Simba, Defender Vuni Bright Joseph from Arua Hill and Holding Midfielder Sam Tiyo Kintu.
