StarTimes Uganda Premier League side BUL FC have confirmed the signing of midfielder Ambrose Kirya.
The midfielder has signed a one-year deal with the Jinja based side ahead of the new Ugandan Premier League (UPL) season.

“BUL FC are delighted to announce the signing of Ambrose Kirya from SC Villa on a one-year working contract.”
“Welcome home, the home of football,” the statement further reads.
BUL FC targets title next season
Coach Arthur Kyesimira has now moved with speed to bolster BUL, who struggled last season.
Kyesimira replaced Peter Onen as the head coach midway through the season and managed to win two of the six matches he was in charge of.
He is now hopeful that the Jinja-based side can enjoy good results, more than the previous seasons if they work together.
Kyesimira optimistic BUL FC will challenge for title
In a recent interview, coach Kyesimira revealed he was confident BUL can push for the UPL title against top teams like KCCA FC and Vipers SC.
“The British say, don’t blow your own trumpet, but the Americans add that if you believe enough, please do,” Kyesimira said as was quoted saying.
“So, I believe that the clubs who have been on top like Vipers and KCCA are strong teams but we can push them.”
“Yes, there is a difference between a good team and a great team. Great teams are successful for a long time.”
“We are a good team, but I am sure after some years we shall be described as a great team.”
“We cannot get the next season underway without having that goal.”
Of course, different teams have different agendas at the start of the season, but we cannot be proud of fighting for survival as a club,” he added.
Ambrose Kirya becomes the seventh signing for BUL who have also signed Ibrahim Mugulusi and Aggrey Madoi.
Mugulusi was signed from Busoga United while Madoi was acquired from Wakiso Giants and both players agreed to sign two-year deals.
