Denis Otim

Express Football Club has confirmed the arrival of Uganda U-20 goalkeeper Denis Otim on a four-year deal.

Otim, 20, was announced officially via the club’s social media posts on Wednesday 12th August 2020.

The well built goalkeeper has been licenced at Mbarara City having crossed from rivals Nyamityobora Football Club.

He expressed his gratitude upon joining the six time Uganda Premier League champions.

I have joined the Red Eagles because it’s a big club in the country and I expect to use it as a spring board to further my career.

Otim and Kusiima will compete for the number one goalkeeping slot alongside Mathias Muwanga who was in goal last season.

Express released two goalkeepers Joshua Adea and Tonny Kyamera, among the 18 players at the end of the 2019-20 season.
