We are delighted to announce the return of Yunus Sentamu to the Club. The striker has signed a two-year contract. 

Sentamu needs no introduction having been playing for St Mary’s Boarding Senior Secondary School Kitende and Vipers SC. He made his name over one season at Vipers scoring six goals in 13 games before moving to Congolese side AS Vita in 2014.

Fred Kajoba unveiled Yunus Sentamu earlier today at St Mary’s Stadium Kitende.

In 2011, Sentamu was St Juliana’s top-scorer in the post-primary qualifiers with 13 goals. They were knocked out by St Mary’s SS Kitende at the quarter-finals. His exploits didn’t go unnoticed. Kitende snapped him up immediately and during the qualifiers for the 2013 Copa Coca-Cola, he scored 24 goals. At the real Copa Coca-Cola tournament in Kabale, he scored 16 goals, two short of the top-scorer. 

He helped Kitende win the cup and later during the East Africa secondary school games in Lira, he scored six goals in five games to lead Kitende to another cup

Yunus Sentamu puts pen to paper on a two-year contract.

His electrifying displays in the Africa Nations Championship (CHAN) in South Africa in 2014 for Uganda Cranes – including a brace against Burkina Faso and consolation strike against Morocco – made the scouting agents sit up and take notice.

On signing his contract, Sentamu said: “Everyone knows the special relationship l have with this club and it has always felt like home to me. My desire to win is still the same and l look forward to the opportunity to help the team achieve. I am excited for this next chapter of my career.”

Fred Kajoba said: “l know Sentamu’s personality very well and l know he will add alot of value and fire power upfront.”

Red For Life: Sentamu shows off his home kit – a red top – at his unveiling.

He will wear the number 12 shirt previously worn by Rahmat Ssenfuka and Rashid Toha (who will wear number 35).
