Wakiso Giants FC new coach Douglas Bamweyana says that his target is to help develop players and in the long run challenge for trophies.
The former Maroons, Villa and Express FC coach signed a three-year contract with the Purple Sharks.
“I’m excited about the project, the quality of the lads and the challenge to build onto the already booming club image. I and my technical team bring lots of experiences and lessons – coupled with our commitment and determination,” Bamweyana told the club website.
“Our most ardent target is to help our players develop into the best version of themselves individually and as a group to help foster the club’s objectives.
“In the long run, we should certainly look to challenge on all fronts for honours within 3 years.
“The entire purple family should expect an attractive, creative and daring style of football – and lots of good times. But it goes without saying: a great dish takes time to prepare.”
It remains to be seen whether Bamweyana will be given enough time at Wakiso who had Kefa Kisala, Steven Bengo (caretaker), Livingston Mbabazi and Deo Sserwadda as coaches last season.
The Purple Sharks finished 10th with 30 points and will be targeting a decent position in their second season in top flight.
The club has already acquired attacking midfielder Ibrahim ‘Owen Baba’ Kasule to bolster the squad.
