For the last two decades, a number of Ugandan goalkeepers have diligently served at Ethiopia Premier League record champions St George Football Club.

From Posnet Omony, Hannington Kalyesubula, Denis Onyango to lately Robert Odongkara, all have done their work with ultimate commitment.

The Ethiopian giants have lately made inquiries about several other Uganda goalkeepers as Tom Ikara (Police) and currently Charles Lukwago (Kampala Capital City Authority).

Lukwago is of late with the Uganda Kobs team in Bahir Dar, Ethiopia for the CECAFA U-23 Challenge as one of the over age players on the team.

St George scouts picked interest in how he is featuring and this is most likely to be followed by a formal request to KCCA.

Lukwago is currently the team captain and first choice goalkeeper at KCCA as he completes his contract.

It is not yet established whether St George has submitted the formal documentations to KCCA.

If so, the response from KCCA will also mean a great deal for the future of the player who recently apologized to the club fans for over reaction during the semifinal of the Uganda Cup against Express at the MTN Omondi stadium, Lugogo.

Before joining KCCA, Lukwago has previously been played at Sports Club Victoria University (SCVU), Proline and Lweza Football Clubs.

By and large, he remains an excellent goalkeeper with great reflexes, shot stopping antics, command and stands out during one against one incidents.

On whether he joins the St George family, it remains first as a personal decision then the will power of KCCA.

KCCA has Ali Mwrusi and Muhammed Matovu as the other goalkeepers available.
