Uganda Premier League (UPL) table leaders BUL FC have added another defender, Fredrick Ngalo, to their squad.
The defender, who crossed over from another Jinja-based UPL side Busoga United signed a two-year contract with the Eastern Giants.
BUL is leading the UPL table with 33 points after 15 games, three more than second-placed Vipers SC.
“I am so excited because of this huge opportunity presented to join the biggest team in Uganda, and I am happy to be part of the BUL FC family,” Ngalo said after putting pen to paper.
“Every player admires to be part of BUL FC. The team is organized, ambitious with good objectives, the coaches are top notch and the working environment is sheer super fine,” he added.
“As a player who wants to further my playing career and who wants to become a great player, this is the best ground and team that I thought and believed I should be part to reach the heights I want to reach.”
“I have found BUL on top and that means I must work hard to see that my new teammates and I maintain it there or even push it higher to achieve the club’s ambitions.”
“And as a defender, I have come to do my job, and that is defending well. For any team to win the league title it should first be able to win its games and that for many times depends on how we defenders play. So, I will defend well to see that we win our matches.”
BUL headcoach Abbey Kikomeko was all praises for his new signing. The coach said;
“Looking at my defense line, I had problems at the right back. Hillary Onek is there but once he gets injured, we get challenges in filling up the gap. So we looked around and identified Ngalo at Busoga United.”
“When you look at his structure, his abilities, pace and everything, I think he can help us beef our defense line. Ngalo also has the ability of creating goals, and I think when given chance to play, he will create for us chances and that is why we have brought him.”
The right back cum central defender comes with a lot of experience to BUL, as he has been a regular in the UPL, with Busoga for the past two and a half seasons.
