FUFA Big League side Police FC’s latest signings have vowed to take the club to the ‘Promised land’ – the Uganda Premier League (UPL).
Upon club unveiling this week, goalkeeper Edward Kasibante from another Big League side Kataka FC and attacking midfielder Steven Kabuye from UPL side Arua Hill FC have all echoed one voice in chorus – taking Police to the Premier division.
Keeping as many cleansheets, scoring so many goals and so much more! The new Cops have promised so much ahead of the new season.
“I want to promote the team to the Premier League. I know we can do all that if we work together as a team,” Kasibante stated.
“I want to keep as many cleansheets as I possibly can. We need to work on not conceding so many goals as a team if we are to attain our primary target, and that’s why I’m here,” the goalkeeper added.
Kabuye said, “I came here to take Police to the UPL. I want to score goals, and make assists that will get us the points we need to qualify to the next level.”
Last season, Police narrowly missed out on a qualification slot by just three points, having accumulated 54 points from 30 games to finish fourth on a 16-team table, just a position below NEC FC who took up the third and last qualification slot to the UPL with 57 points.
The Cops scored 40 goals, the 5th most in the league, as they also conceeded 20, to rank thee fourth best in the league.
The new acquisitions have now promised to better those numbers to make UPL qualification inevitable.
Before Kasibante and Kabuye, Police first unveiled, defender Allan Bukenya from Katwe United on a two year employment contract.
Only awaiting official unveiling, The Cops have also captured the signatures of forward Derrick Onyai and defender Edmond ‘Sizzo’ Otim from Kataka, plus former Arua Hill striker Isaac Ogwang.
