Vipers Sports Club has completed the signing of Mbarara city defender Hillary Mukundane on a three year deal.

He joins returnee Frank ‘Zaga’ Tumwesigye as the new players that have walked to St. Mary’s stadium in this mid season transfer window.

Mukundane refused to renew his contract at Mbarara city and left the Mbarara side last week as a free agent, he has been given shirt number 22 at the Venoms.

He described his move to Vipers as a ‘dream come true.’

“I feel happy joining Vipers and it’s a dream come true because am at the biggest club in the country right now. I hope that many successes come from this,” he told club media.

“I can’t wait to put the shirt on and get out there and play for Vipers.”

“The ambitions for the club are clear and I want to be part of this journey.”

The 21-year-old defender played for Kamoma FC and Ntoda FC in the Western Regional League before he moved to Mbarara city in 2016, a side he helped earn promotion to the Uganda Premier League that very season before he was handed the captain’s armband three years later.

He has become the third player to join Vipers from Mbarara City in the last three years, joining Paul Mucureezi and Ibrahim Orit. He will have to compete with Halid Lwalilwa and Livingstone Mulondo for a starting berth in the Venom’s defence.

Vipers SC is second on the Uganda premier league table with 30 points after 14 matches.
