Vipers: Karim Watambala Reflects On Debut Season

Vipers teenage midfielder Karim Watambala says that he enjoyed each game during his first season with the senior team.

The Central midfielder, a student at St Mary’s SS Kitende, made a breakthrough in the 2019/20 season and his performances earned him a place in the Uganda Cranes team of local based players.

He went on to help Vipers win their fourth league title after the league was ended prematurely due to Covid19 pandemic.

“Last season was a tough one as I was treading in new waters,” Watambala told the Club website.

“At a new stage with so many people of different characters, I endured several challenges. But at the end of the day, my experience was enriched and I learned many lessons.

“I had a strong starting point to my senior career and I intend to keep going stronger step by step.

“I enjoyed playing each game, the coaches trusted me while I freely showcased my abilities. This made me fit well into the team. Now, I want to do more and more.”

Despite an injury during the season, the midfielder racked up over 12 games, making four assists and scoring one in a 3-1 away win over Police FC.
