Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) Football Club have announced they have signed striker Steven Mukwala Dese from Vipers SC on a two-year contract, with an option to extend for a further year.
Mukwala was the top scorer last season in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League 2019/20 season with 13 goals in 22 appearances for Maroons FC where he was on loan from Vipers.
During the unveiling, the striker promised to double his effort and score more goals than those he had in the just concluded season.
“I definitely hope to score more goals here than I scored at Maroons. URA has very good creative attacking midfielders who I think working together, I will be able to convert the goals,” he told the club website.
He is however aware of the situation at hand in the new family but says he will offer his best.
“It’s only fair to note that URA FC has very good strikers and it won’t be easy to break through the team but when given chance, I will give my best to see that I help the team get the goals and maybe win the trophy afterward.”
The striker intimated to the club media that: “URA FC is a big club and I feel so delighted and proud to be part of it. They’re an organized team with a playing style that matches mine.”
“The coach, board, and everyone affiliated with URA should expect to see 100% efforts from me and I want to try and win the trophy with URA FC this coming season, why not?” He confidently asserted.
There had been several media reports suggesting the youngster was on the verge of joining Ghanaian giants, Asante Kotoko.
It’s not clear how far the deal had reached or even why it fell through. But what is clear is that his addition will ignite the fire in Sam Ssimbwa’s front army.
