West Nile based Uganda Premier League entity Onduparaka Football Club has completed the signing of striker Gabriel Matata.

The 19-year-old striker joins the Caterpillars from Mvara Boys, a Regional League club in Arua.

Matata signed a year long deal with Onduparaka, that will be coached by Vialli Bainomugisha.

Before playing for Mvara Boys, Matata had also featured at the Onduparaka Junior Team, hitherto tagged Ondunyiri during the 2018-19 season.
