It is a blend of the vastly experienced and youth.

This is the formidable team that is expected to deliver results as the Venoms defend the FUFA Super Cup and Uganda Premier League.

Other competitions that await the Kitende based club include the Uganda Cup and CAF Champions League with the desire to replicate KCCA’s feat of playing in the group stages of the continental championship.

FUFA has earmarked the kick off of the 2020/21 season tentatively for October 2020 should the health conditions improve.

I am delighted to have this talented group of coaches alongside me. They bring a great mix of experience and fresh thinking

Fred Kajoba Kisitu, second assistant coach at Vipers Sports Club

I am excited to be joining Vipers and for the chance to work with Kajoba again. It is an opportunity I couldn’t let up. I would like to thank Vipers management for giving me this chance and l know that our skills and experience will complement each other as we work to develop an exciting new team

Paul Kiwanuka, first assistant coach at Vipers Sports Club

I am a man of few words who prefers doing the talking on the pitch but l feel proud and honoured to reunite and work closely with the two coaches plus the other staff at Vipers
