KAMPALA: Vipers Sports Club, in a move to boost their striking power, have signed forward Allan Kayiwa from Tooro United on a two-year contract.
Marksman Kayiwa was officially unveiled today to his new teammates by Vipers head coach, Michael Nam Ouma, at the club training.
The forward joins The Venoms as a free agent thus becoming their first signing in this transfer window.
He has been a subject of interest from other league opponents but made a choice to ply his trade at the Kitende-based side and was elated upon arrival.
“I have made the best choice to join this great club, it’s my new home and am so excited to be here. I am ready for the new challenge as well,” said Kayiwa.
The youngster broke on to the local scene in 2015 from Soana Young, his former club’s academy team and proved his worth in the senior team, subsequently attracting interest from many rival clubs.
Kayiwa has been at least the most consistent player at Tooro United for the last two seasons averaging 8 goals and assists per season.
He is known for his vision, eye for goal plus skill on the ball and can play upfront and on the flanks thus his addition will help to minimize the offensive problems at Vipers in the coming season.
He was part of Uganda Cranes team during the recently concluded Cosafa tournament and featured in semifinal against South Africa.
