Former national U20 captain Garvin Kizito Mugerwi has been chosen by Head Coach Petros Koukouras to lead the youthful assembled SC Villa.
The youngster will take over the position that was occupied by Asuman Arishe and Emmanuel Wasswa last season. The pair has since departed the record Uganda Premier League champions.
Kizito has been captain of Uganda at the U17 and U20 and has captained both those sides at the respective AFCON finals.
Kizito is likely to be assisted by custodian Meddie Kibirige and long serving defender Joseph Nsubuga.
It’s still uncertain if the Jogoos will feature in this season’s StarTimes UPL after they were ommited from the latest fixture released by the Secretariat on Tuesday ahead of the new season set to begin on Friday.
