Hours after parting ways with Gondar based Fassil Kenema Football Club, Uganda Cranes midfielder Yassar Mugerwa has crossed to another top tier side, Shire F.C.

Mugerwa put pen to the treasured dotted lines on a new employment contract at Shire Football Club for a year-long deal.

Although the financial nitty gritty of this fresh deal remains scanty at large, highly placed sources at Shire FC indicate that Mugerwa agreed upon a sign on fee over $25,000.

Shire FC is a new entrant in the Ethiopia Premier League, based in the Northern part of the country.

Although he still had another five months to go, Mugerwa mutually terminated his employment contract with Fassil Kenema F.C citing family engagements.

I am happy to be at Shire Football Club. Life is a journey of new challenges and I am ready to give my best at my new home.

He had joined Fassil Kenema in September 2017 on a two year deal having earlier played at St George Football Club where he had signed from South African club, Orlando Pirates.
