Vipers Sports Club have completed the signing of left back Disan Galiwango from Express.
Galiwango, previously a flying Red Eagle, will now spit ‘Venom’ from the St Mary’s Kitende-based outfit after putting pen to paper on a four-year contract.
The talented defender signs for an undisclosed fee and becomes the Venoms first signing as coach Fred Kajoba looks to add steel to an already multi-faceted squad.
His arrival brings an end to transfer speculations which have been linking him to various clubs within and outside the country before finally agreeing to terms with Vipers.
Humble career journey
Galiwango began his football career at Rifo Soccer Academy before being picked by Simba SC at the start of the 2015/16 season, who thereafter their relegation bought The Saints FC.
He stayed with the army side throughout the 2016/17 season until January 2018 when Water FCacquired his services for half a season.
In August 2018, the versatile player was lured by Express FC where he has distinctively plied his trade until the end of the just concluded season before Vipers presented an irresistible package in this transfer season.
New role for utility star
At Wankulukuku, the former Express captain played many roles but was primarily fielded as a winger. But at Vipers, he will vie with teenage sensation Aziz Kayondo for a slot into the club’s Starting XI on match days.
Despite conceding few goals last season, Kajoba is intent on building an impregnable back-line whilst keeping CAF Champions League football at the back of his mind as the big picture.
After signing the dotted line, Galiwango told the club website how excited he is in regard to the move. “In my view, Vipers is a big football brand in this country hence I’m honoured to be joining this great club. I promise to add value as expected.”
Vipers tactician Kajoba also admitted that Galiwango had been on the club’s radar after an impressive season with Express and it was now ‘mission accomplished’.
“Galiwango is a player with huge potential. But most importantly he is also ready to come in and contribute right away which is a key factor,” said Kajoba about his star newbie.
