We can confirm the signing of forward Allan Kayiwa from Tooro United.
Kayiwa was officially unveiled to his new teammates by Vipers head coach Michael Nam Ouma this morning at the club training.
The tantalising forward joins us from the then Fort Portal based club as a free agent on a two year deal thus becomes the first signing of Vipers in this transfer window.
He has been a subject of interest from other league opponents but made a choice to ply his trade at Kitende and was elated upon arrival.
“I have made the best choice to join this great club, it’s my new home and am so excited to be here. I am ready for the new challenge as well.”
The youngster broke on to the local scene in 2015 from Soana Young, his former club’s academy team and proved his worth in the senior team subsequently attracting interest from many rival clubs.
Kayiwa has been at least the most consistent player at Tooro United for the last two seasons averaging 8 goals and assists per season.
He is known for his vision, eye for goal plus skill on the ball and can play upfront and in the flanks thus his addition will help to minimise the offensive problems at Vipers in the coming season.
He was part of Uganda Cranes team during the recently concluded Cosafa Cup putting up brave performances as our nation lost out to Lesotho in the quarterfinals and South Africa in the plate semifinal.
Name: Allan Kayiwa
D.o.B: October 7th, 1997
