Vipers SC have completed the signing of right-back Grant Matsiko on a two-year employment contract, which will run till 2025.

Matsiko is the club’s fifth signing in the ongoing transfer window after Giancarlo Lopez Rodriguez, Luiz Otavio Santos de Araujo commonly known as Tinga, Richard Matovu and David Bagoole.

Grant Matsiko shows off his home kit – a red top – at his unveiling.

He has spent the past two seasons at neighbours Wakiso Giants FC where he has been a major hit, especially last season.

Matsiko was named in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League (SUPL) team of the season at the Pilsner UPL Awards, asserting his name as one of the finest players in his position in the country.

Matsiko puts pen to paper on a two-year contract at St Mary’s Stadium.

“I’m very happy to be here and I want to win a lot with this club because it’s an amazing club.”

“I want to be a big part of this club and now, I have to level up and show another personality of me on the pitch because this is a demanding & ambitious team.”

Matsiko becomes our fifth signing of the ongoing 2023/24 transfer window.

He will be expected to vie for a starting berth with Ashraf Mandela, who won both the league and the Uganda Cup with the Venoms last season.

He is also a former player at Kigezi Homeboyz, captaining them till 2021, before joining Wakiso Giants FC.

Everyone at Vipers SC welcomes Matsiko to the club!!!
