URA FC Zeroes Down On Sam Timbe

Uganda Premier League side URA FC is set to confirm that CAF ‘A’ licensed football tactician Sam Timbe will take charge of the team management duties for the next one year.

The current state of affairs is informed by the fact that the Tax Collectors will be required to have someone with the necessary requirements to foresee their continental campaign on the touchline.

The club reportedly inquired about former coach Sam Ssimbwa and Paul Nkata before settling for Timbe.

His immediate duty will be managing the team during their CAF Confederations Cup Preliminary round fixture against Ethiopian Coffee that is scheduled to take place this Sunday September 12th.

His managerial career is however a source of envy for many counterparts since the success written about across the East African region is astonishing and mouthwatering at the same time.

He has won the CECAFA Kagame Cup with four different clubs including: SC Villa (2005), Police FC (2006), Atraco from Rwanda (2009) and in 2011 with Tanzanian side Young Africans.

The adventure has also seen him coach in Kenya with teams like Sofapaka and Tusker FM, who he left in 2018 to take a sabbatical but come back to join Malaysian Premier League side Persatuan Bolasepak Sarawak FC in 2020.

During this tenure, Timbe will be assisted by a technical team of Simeon Masaba as head coach, Robert Mukasa as assistant, Billy Kiggundu as goalkeeper coach and Edward Ssali as physical trainer.

He comes with a lot of experience to the Tax Collectors and it will be interesting to see how his midas touch as manager that has seen him enjoy a lot of success helps URA FC achieve success.
