Uganda Premier League side BUL FC have confirmed the acquisition of URA goalkeeper Hannington Ssebwalunyo on a one year loan deal.
The shot-stopper rejoins the Jinja based side after having spent two seasons away with short spells at both Maroons FC and the Tax Collectors respectively.
While with URA, he established himself as a reliable source of security while performing his custodian work of keeping the opposition offense at bay.
His stay there however has been short-lived due to the stiff competition in the department from Nafian Alionzi thus prompting a loan move back to his former employers.
The move back to the Busoga giants was irresistible according to the 30 year old custodian who was full of ecstasy at the completion of his medical. He said as much in an interview with the club media team:
“I am pleased to return home where my journey in topflight football began. My commitment will be to add value to the team and therefore a lot of effort should be expected of me. There is no place quite like home.”
His topflight journey commenced at BUL FC in the 2017/18 season where he made his Uganda Premier League debut before he would make a switch to Maroons FC in 2019.
While at URA the previous season, Ssebwalunyo convinced in the few games he got to represent in goal but was unable to shrug off the goalkeeping prowess of his senior competitor.
He becomes the third official signing for the Eastern Giants, joining other new arrivals like goalkeeper Saidi Keni and forward Ibrahim Nsimbe.
