According to his representative and players’ agent Geofrey Solo Kayemba, Wasswa signed a short term contract with favourable terms in case he gets employment elsewhere.

“Herman Wasswa will play at Maroons Football Club on a brief spell as we weigh in options coming in” Kayemba said of his client.

He reunites with Maroons new coach George “Best” Nsimbe who replaced Asaph Mwebaze. The latter has since joined West Nile based crowd darling, Onduparaka Football Club.

In his mid-twenties, Wasswa has garnered enough experience over time having previously played at Masaka Local Council, Sports Club Villa Jogoo, Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA), Express, Kenya Premier League outfit Sofapaka, Zambia Premier side Lusaka Dynamos and lately Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) Football Clubs.

Wasswa top scored during the 2012/13 Uganda Premier League season with 20 goals as well as emerging as the top scorer in the Uganda Cup for the 2014/15 tournament with seven goals.

His athleticism, ball heading and shooting antics will be a key factor at Maroons who already have proven forward Solomon Walusimbi in their midst.

Wasswa is also a proven champion having lifted the Uganda Premier League twice, one Mapinduzi cup triumph and twice runners up in the knock out Uganda Cup.

The Prisons run side has also  signed former Bright Stars forward Seif Batte, Sulaiman Majaanjalo (UPDF), Rashid Agau, left back Samuel “Rocky” Ssemitego, left forward Rashid Kyeyune, former Police skipper Brian Mpuuga, Dan Wagaluka and lately left winger Brian Majwega.

Last season, Maroons ended the season in 9th place with 37 points.
