In Jerieko, the club adds a scoring midfielder who managed to scored 18 goals in 21 games for Paidha Black Angles JT in the FUFA Junior League in the last season. He has also featured in the Uganda U17 team in the past few years.
He becomes the Caterpillars first new addition this window after the Club let go of more than 15 players from their squad early on the window that includes; Austine Opoka Atiino, Hakim Magombe, Najib Tusaba Gwaidho, Mukiibi Ali, Amis Muwonge, Akoch Augustine, Shaban Wasswa, Denis Andama, Ajobe Mahdi, Moses Okot, Agaba Oscar, Living Kabon and Mohammed Kyeline.
The club is also on the verge of signing former Vipers SC striker Mohammed Shaban whose contract was terminated on mutual consent last week.
Onduparaka finished 12th on the log last season with only 28 points garnered in 26 games.
