Bashir Ssekagya, Abraham Ndugwa have now left Vipers SC following the end of their contracts.
All two formed a part of our men’s first team squad for all or some of their Vipers careers, and we would like to wish them the best for the future.
Abraham Ndugwa departs St Mary’s Stadium having joined the club at the start of the 2018/19 football season and a winner after three seasons of exemplary service during which time he won.
Vice club captain for the past two years, Ndugwa played 41 times for the Venoms and scored 10 goals. He won the Uganda Premier League, Fufa Pilsner Super 8 and most famously remembered for his sole goal against Sudanese outfit El Merreikh as we progressed to the second round of the CAF Champions League in 2018.
Ndugwa will be much missed by everyone at Vipers SC. He leaves with everyone’s best wishes.
Bashir Ssekagya leaves St Mary’s Stadium having joined the club also at the start of the 2018/19 football season.
Ssekagya joined the Venoms from UPDF FC in 2018 to add further competition for our first-choice goalkeeper Ismail Watenga then, a role he continued later with Fabien Mutombora and Derrick Ochan, bringing a wealth of experience and quickly becoming a well-respected and hugely popular member of the squad.
Arguably Ssekagya’s greatest contribution to Vipers success during his three years at Kitende came in his first season here. He became our regular goalkeeper when Watenga went AWOL as the team headed to Tanzania for the Cecafa Kagame Cup in 2018. In that campaign, he made outstanding saves in the group stages before the team went down fighting against Kenya’s Gor Mahia in the quarterfinals.
The goalkeeper also played an important part in helping us secure a second round spot in the CAF Champions League before he suffered a nasty knee injury against Algeria’s CS Constantine. The injury kept him out for a long time and after recovering, he went out on loan at Proline FC during the 2019/20 football season before returning to the club last season.
Ssekagya will be much missed by everyone at Vipers SC. He leaves with everyone’s best wishes.
Everybody at Vipers Sports Club would like to wish Ssekagya and Ndugwa the very best of luck for the future and thank them for their efforts for the club.
