Dickens 'Diarra"' Okwir

Paidha Black Angels Football Club lead striker and captain Dickens “Diarra” Okwir has categorically set his personal and team’s targets.

Okwir eyes the top scorers’ accolade as well as guiding his club back to the Uganda Premier League where they belonged last season.

As a striker and captain of Paidha Black Angels Football Club, I want to inspire my club back to the Uganda Premier League.  Of course, I have set personal target of being the league top scorer. This calls for the collective effort of all my fellow players and all everybody at the club including fans.
