Vipers SC have wrapped up the capture of experienced tactician Alex Isabirye from Uganda Premier League side BUL FC.

The gaffer comes in as a direct replacement for the recently released Beto Bianchi Pellister, who parted ways with the club towards the end of last week.

On making the move to St Mary’s Stadium, Isabirye said: ‘I am incredibly proud and excited to represent Vipers Sports Club, this fantastic football club. I am very excited to be here and look forward to meeting and working with the exciting group of players and to develop a team and culture that our amazing fans can be proud of.”

Isabirye will work alongside other coaches; Richard Wasswa, Ibrahim Mugisha and Kato Ibrahim.

He is a previous league winner with URA FC, but also scooped the Uganda Cup with Victoria University and BUL.

He also managed other sides including Kyetume FC, Soana FC, Busoga United and Somali outfit Horseed FC.

Isabirye will be tasked to salvage some positives from the CAF Champions League where the Venoms lie fourth in Group C with a point.

The versed tactician will also try to defend the Uganda Premier League where we sit fourth with 28 points, seven adrift of leaders KCCA FC who have played a game more.

His other job will be to guide Vipers to Uganda Cup glory. The team take on Wakiso Giants FC on Tuesday at the Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium in the round of 16.
