Edward Golola appointed Vipers coach

Vipers Sports Club is delighted to announce Edward Golola as new head coach. 

Golola returns to the club for his third stint (2009-2011, 2014-2015) at the helm having served as an assistant coach to Portuguese tactician Miguel Da Costa (2017-2018) and Kenyan Michael Nam Ouma (half 2019).

“I am immensely proud to be returning as head coach. Everyone knows my love for this club and the history we have shared, however, my sole focus is on the job in hand and preparing for the season ahead,” Golola remarked. 

Club President Dr. Lawrence Mulindwa confirmed the new development to the players during Saturday’s morning training session at St Mary’s Stadium. 

“As the executive we can confirm Edward Golola as our next coach and we will give him all the support he needs this season.”

Golola will be deputised by Richard Wasswa, who also returns to the club for his third spell.

The technical team that was dissolved earlier has been reappointed with Ram Nyakana Mpuga (fitness coach), Edward Ssali (second assistant coach), Mathius Kassagga (physiotherapist) and Moses Oloya as goalkeeping coach.

Vipers SC start the 2019/20 football season with participation in the Pilsner Super 8 tournament that gets underway next week. 

The opening game will be on July 31 against Proline FC at StarTimes Stadium, Lugogo.

  1. Is he appointed because vipers won’t have any international duty like caf in order for him to bring vipers to championship this season and then after appoint another one

  2. As usual. But vipers should change this trend of changing coaches. Golola has become a stepping stone at vipers. Kale binyiza
