Following months of speculation, former SC Villa and KCCA FC winger Martin Kizza has finally completed a move to the Six-time Uganda Premier League champions, Express FC.
Kizza joins the Red Eagles on a one-year employment contract as a free agent having left South Africa’s Royal Eagles months ago.
Speaking to the club website after completing his move to the Red Eagles, Kizza says he is happy to join the club and wants to help them win silverware this season.
He said: “I am happy to join this great historical club where winning silverware is a priority. I already feel at home because the players have been so welcoming and I can’t wait to fight for the badge and help the club win silverware this season.”
The Wankulukuku based side’s head coach, Wasswa Bbosa confirms that Kizza is a good addition to the team, but will have to earn his place into the team.
“I have known Kizza for a while now, he is a hardworking and focused player, he joins us at a crucial time although he has to prove to get into the team. For me he brings speed in attack and creativity as well, so he’s a good addition.”
Before moving to South Africa in 2019, Martin Kizza had featured for KCCA FC and SC Villa in Uganda for more than 4 seasons, so he will add experience to the Express team that sits third on the log with 32 points garnered in 15 games.
He has worked with Wasswa Bbosa before at Sports Club Villa a period during which he was summoned to the national team, the Cranes.
His addition is a big boost for the Wakulukuku based side ahead of their first UPL second-round game against top-placed URA FC on Saturday.
Express FC will be without George Ssenkaaba who is still unavailable due to injury.
