Newly promoted Uganda Premier League outfit Kitara Football Club has intensified their efforts to seek for a new head coach.

The development comes after Mark Twinamatisko, the main architect being their promotion to the highest tier division of football in Uganda will not renew his employment contract.

“We are in a formal process of hiring a new head coach and beefing up the technical area as well as key player additions” Joshua Atugonza, the club Chief Executive Officer (CEO) disclosed.

A number of coaches have openly expressed keen interest to take up the job.

Kawowo Sports has established that the Hoima based club which will most likely shift base to Masindi Municipality held an internal planning meeting on Saturday to forge a way forward.

Strike Brian Mululi Mayanja was the hero with the priceless goal on 55 minutes.

Before facing Kiboga Young, Kitara had eliminated another Mbale based club Kataka 7-6 in post match penalties after normal time had ended goal-less.

Meanwhile, Kiboga Young rallied from a goal down to out-muscle Ndejje University 3-1 in their other semi-final contest.

Kitara thus joined two other clubs that had earlier gained promotion to the Uganda Premier League as Uganda Peoples Defence Forces (UPDF) and Malaba Youth Development Association (MYDA).
