Uganda Premier League side Onduparaka Football Club has acquired striker Noel Nasasira on a season – long deal from Kyetmue.

Nasasira’s representative David Kalyango of Zabbu Sports Consult confirmed the move to Kawowo Sports.

“Yes. It is true that one of our clients Noel Nasasira has joined Onduparaka Football Club on a loan of one year from Kyetume. We wish him fruitful deliberations” Kalyango who also handles the Catarpillar’s head coach Villai Bainomugisha disclosed.

For starters, Nasasira had joined Kyetume at the start of last season from Ndejje University where he had been loaned by KCCA.

He is the natural replacement for Julius Malingumu whose employment contract expired and has not shown any interest to renew.
