Transfers: Kizza extends stay in Pittsburgh


Ugandan young forward Edward Kizza has extended his stay at United States side Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC for one more year.

Kizza joined the club last season, initially on a loan move from New England Revolution and by the end of the season, he had scored three goals in 12 appearance. Two of his three goals came in the Eastern Conference quarterfinal game against Birmingham.

“Kizza brings goal scoring, ideas and mobility up top. He is a forward who works hard for the team, and we are excited to have him back in Pittsburgh for the 2023 USL Championship season,” Riverhounds head coach Bob Lilley said.

Kizza arrived in USA in 2017 and played college football at the University of Pittsburgh where he scored 31 goals for the Panthers in his three seasons there.

It was from there that he got drafted by MLS’s New England Revolution in 2020, but spent more time playing for the New England II in the USL League One.

In 2021, He was sent to Memphis 901 FC on loan to get more playing time in the USL Championship before he joined Pittsburgh.

Kizza will hope to be available for Pittsburgh when the 2023 USL Championship season begins on March 11, when the Hounds play Birmingham Legion FC.
