Geoffrey Wasswa: URA FC Finally Gets Their Man

URA FC have completed the signing of versatile player Geoffrey Wasswa, The-SportsNation has learnt.

Wasswa has put pen to paper on a two-year contract, a deal that will expire in 2023.

After ending his stay at Vipers, Wasswa was on the verge of joining URA at the start of this year.

The defender, together with his agent Denis Namanya met URA FC coach Sam Ssimbwa in January but the deal did not materialise.

Wasswa went to Expres and started training at Wankulukuku but he failed to agree terms with the Red Eagles as he reportedly preferred a short term deal.

In dramatic turn of events, Wasswa ended up at SC Villa where he scored on his debut on April 11 as the Jogoos eliminated Ndejje University out of Uganda Cup.

He leaves Villa after running out his short-term contract. He started his professionals stint at Vipers in 2016.

Wasswa who can play comfortably in the middle of the park, is a great addition to the Tax Collectors who are gearing up for CAF Confederation Cup.

URA who are expected to hand coach Sam Ssimbwa a new contract are in race against time to finalise a couple of deals before the CAF registration window on August 15.

The side will be taking part in CAF’s Secondary Club competition for the first time since 2015 when they lost to Orlando Pirates at the first round.
