The football governing body in the country (FUFA), on 29th October 2020 confirmed the appointment of new technical personnel for the U-20 and U-17 National Junior teams. Amongst the list of these gems happens to be two of our very own.

Simeon Masaba and Stephen Billy Kiggundu have both been appointed to the roles of Assistant Coach & Fitness and Goalkeeper Coach respectively to the U-20 Ugandan National team.

Simeon Masaba will play an Assistant role to coach Morley Bwekwaso who has been charged with the responsibility of heading the team. A role that is equally befitting of the personality.

The club is delighted that part of our coaching staff will have more involvement in the National Team at the Junior level which in a way will help the young star players of tomorrow.

What they bring to the table

The winning mentality especially from Simeon Masaba who himself is no stranger to winning. He is a winner as his resume highlights and that is something the current crop of young players require. 

For a person with his kind of exposure and experience has a lot to offer the club going forward and him joining our technical team is a massive addition and an inspiration to all. 

Needless to mention that the goalkeepers will gain a lot from the presence of Stephen Billy Kigundu. He is a person with massive experience as a goalkeeping​ coach and that is supposed to help.

As a veteran defender, Simeon will provide a lot of guidance to the young defenders and inspiration. His presence alone in the dressing room will provide a lot of confidence to the troops. 

We wish them all the best in that adventure and hope and pray that they make the team proud.
