Luwaga Kizito Switches Teams In Israel

The international adventures of Ugandan forward William Luwaga Kizito has yet taken another incredible milestone following his unveiling at Israeli Premier League club Hapoel NOF HaGalil Football Club.

The winger joins as a free agent following the expiry of his employment contract with relegated Hapoel Kfar Saba FC with whom he played during the previous season. He joined them in January 2020.

Luwaga put up magnificent performances for Hapoel Kfar Saba during the just concluded campaign, scoring seven goals but his efforts were not sufficient enough to help them shrug off relegation advances.

For a player that commenced his professional football career with Uganda Premier League side Vipers Sports Club, the trajectory has moved well and continues to do with his latest deal.

He has nonetheless played stints at Bate Borisov (Bulgaria), CMS Politehnica Lasi (Romania) and Shakhter Karagandy (Kazakhstan).

Luwaga will however hold Portugal as a country in high esteem for helping nurture him and improve massively as seen from a host of clubs he represented while there. These include: CD Feirense, Rio Ave, Leixoes and Sporting Covilha.

He has been included in the squad for his new side that will face Hapoel Jerusalem on Monday 30th 2021 in the aftermath of his conclusion with the contract signatures on Saturday August 28th.

This will rightfully be their first game of the season in the Israel Premier League following their promotion to the 2021/22 edition of the league.

He becomes the third player to play his trade in the Israeli following players like Timothy Dennis Awany and Fahad Bayo. Both players play for topflight league team FC Ashdod.
