Goalkeeper Austin Opoka has vowed to fight and make onduparaka great again following his transfer from Busoga United.
Opoka who is returning to Onduparaka says that the decision to leave Busoga has been a hard one but “the better one for me to make.”
“Its not my first time to be here, I was here while still a student but when I got done with my studies Busoga United snatched me but after the expiration of my contract onduparaka called and I couldn’t hesistate,” Opoka told The-SportsNation.
The stopstopper was linked to a move to join Bright Stars before Onduparaka FC won the contest.
Onduparaka, since their top flight promotion in 2016, have been one of the league’s powerhouses until last season when they finished eighth with 31 points.
The club has lost many players in the previous windows and their new signings for this coming season are yet to impress the staunch fans.
Besides Opoka, none of the additions have joined from a UPL side.
“Its really challenging for me and the other new entrants but we will fight hard for the fans and team Badge so we can surpass last season when the club finished 8th,” Opoka added.
“As one, I can’t promise fans we are winning the tittle next season because we are like regrouping but all fans should expect is a better position than the previous season and maybe after next season we can think of winning the league tittle.
“Of course the fans should expect my experience because I have at least had two seasons in the top flight.”
Opoka is expected to compete for the number one spot in goal with Yusuf Wasswa who has been the club’s first choice.
Other new signings at Onduparaka include Simon Okot, Stephen Ogiramoi, Okech Emmanuel, Emmanuel Odur, Gabriel Matata, Kennedy Atibuni, Jerry Jakisa, Bony Musema, Akoch Augustine, Jasper Okello, Nelson Opiyo and Jerry Jakisa.
