Express FC head coach Wasswa Bbosa has applauded the club’s new signing Enock Walusimbi.
The versatile defender was unveiled by the Red Eagles signing from Bright Stars FC and he penned a two-year contract.
According to Bbosa, Walusimbi will add a lot to the Wankulukuku based side ahead of the 2020/2021 season.
“I have always kept an eye on Enock Walusimbi and those that know him can agree with me that he brings a lot to us,” Bbosa told the club’s official website.
“His game intelligence and leadership qualities are next to none,” he added.
Enock Walusimbi grateful for joining Express FC
After signing for Express FC, Walusimbi said that he is grateful to sign for a historical club like Express FC.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to become an Express player, this club has a lot of history so much so that I’ve always wanted to be part of it,” he said.
The 22-year-old has also featured for regional sides Nansana and Luweero United and Solito Bright Stars.
He also guided the Buganda Province Region to the 2019 Fufa Drum, scoring one goal in the process.
His arrival is a huge boost to coach Bbosa’s backline, as they try to avoid a repeat of last season where the club leaked in over 35 goals.
He also becomes the 14th signing for the upcoming campaign joining goalkeepers Denis Otim and Cryspus Kusiima, right-back Richard Bbosa.
Midfielders include Isaac Nsengiyunva, Abel Eturude, Godfrey Lwesibawa, Ibrahim Kayiwa, Mahad Kakooza, Baker Sakah and Faisal Ssekyanzi.
Forwards are Charles Musiige and Kiragga Mustafa.
Express targets their seventh Ugandan Premier League (UPL) title when the new season kicks off.
Fufa had set October 17 as a tentative date for the start of the new campaign, but it is not going to be the case as the Federation postponed the date.
