Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) Chief Executive Officer, Edgar Watson Ssubi has joined social media site Twitter to engage with the sports fraternity.

The former Cranes player revealed the reason why he eventually joined the platform in his first tweet not giving away much as expressed his readiness to engage the public.

Edgar was born 43 years ago to Jackson and Margret Ndaula in Kampala, and as a player he almost won everything there is to compete for both domestically and in the CECAFA region.

The soft spoken legend announced his arrival to Ugandan football at Miracle F.C in the early 1990s under coach Eddie Butindo.

However before joining miracle FC, he had featured for lower division sides like Namirembe F.C, Kyewagula F.C, St. Matia Mulumba, Puma F.C and Baggery F.C.

In 1996, Watson joined trophy hungry SC Villa and was appointed captain when the Blues hired their former legend Paul Hasule as coach in 1998.

He became Villa’s most successful captain having helped the club win the cecafa title – some thing that had last happened in 1987 breaking a 16 year old regional jinx.

Edgar later made his national team debut in a friendly game versus Kenya in 1995 and was part of the Cranes side that whipped Rwanda 5-0 in the preliminary round of AFCON qualifiers in 1998.

His last game for the national team was November 2003 against Mauritius when the Cranes lost 3 -1 away but qualified for the group stages on a 4-3 aggregate having won 3-0 in Kampala.
