Abdu Lumala has written the following emotional message to Vipers SC fans.

I would like to say a heartfelt thank you to everyone connected to Vipers Sports Club; from the owner; Dr. Lawrence Mulindwa, to the head coach, the backroom staff, and of course to the supporters who have been amazing to me throughout my time at the club.

Having joined the club as a midfielder, the club has helped me to develop and progress immensely both as a footballer and as a person. I will always be grateful to everyone at the club for what they have allowed me to achieve. In a footballers’ career, it’s not often that you get the chance to work with a club that is willing to passionately dedicate so much time and effort to improving and developing players, so I feel very lucky to have enjoyed two years at this great club.

The memories that I will take from Vipers will stay with me forever. After the journey that we’ve been on and the success that we’ve had. Vipers has been great to me over my time here and I’d like to think that I’ve been good to you and I leave with the club in a better place. Make no mistake, Vipers is a club that is on the rise and has a very bright future.

Winning the domestic double (Uganda Premier League and Stanbic Uganda Cup) last season and qualifying the team for it’s first ever CAF Champions League group stages, was the biggest honour that I’ve had in my career so far, and I will be eternally thankful to the club for everything that it has done for me. Vipers will always have a special place in my heart. Thank you again and I wish the club all the very best for the future!!!

Thank you,

Abdu Lumala
