Today I say goodbye to a magnificent club as it is Police Football. I want to thank the club for helping me become a better footballer and for making me feel at home during my time here. About a year ago Police FC, a club that will remain in my heart, gave me the amazing opportunity to play in Uganda Premier League. And for me scoring 5 goals and 4 assists in my first season is an achievement. After this year I can only say thank you to the club, My amazing coaches Abdallah Mubiru for the trust, love, parental guidance he always had in me. May the God lord reward him and grant his desires as a coach. Thanks coach John Luyinda, Pius Ngabo, and coach Richard Kansole. Fans that have supported me since the first day I wore this jersey and of course thank you and good luck to my team-mates, who helped me settle in since day one not only as teammates but as friends. Today, I say goodbye to Police Football Club but I take with me many memories, lessons, and great moments that will live with me forever. It has been one of the best years of my football career. At last, I want to wish Police many success for the future and thank the club for giving me the opportunity to sign from Busiro Ssaza, a club to which I want to give back all the trust they have given me and start a new season with many success my new club KCCA Football Club. Thank you with all my heart.Andrew Samson Kigozi
