22-year old shot-stopper Nasif Kabuye has committed his future at the Masaza Cup record champions Gomba Ssaza ahead of the 2020 cup edition.
Kabuye joined Ibrahim Kirya’s side in 2017, and has been a constant feature for the Four-time winners.
“It is humbling to play at Gomba Ssaza team. After winning with the team in 2017, I look forward to winning again in 2020 as the Lions seek for the fifth championship” Kabuye told ChimpReports.
He also featured for Busujju and Buluuli before joining the record champions. Currently, Kabuye plays for Kampala Junior Team (KJT) in the third division, Kampala Regional League.
He becomes the second goalkeeper added to the team’s squad after the ssaza previously acquired three-time Masaza cup winner Emmanuel Derrick Were.
Other players that have joined Gomba in this off season are Henry Bishop Orom, Nasser Lukwago (right backs), Ponsiano Ssegonjja, Ben Nambokoho (left backs), Abdallah Ssentongo, Joseph Bright Vuni (central defenders) and Amuli Mukasa.
The list also has Hussein Grace Senoga (holding midfielder), Ibrahim “Seven” Kasinde, Bashir Lubinga, Sharif “De Maria” Nsereko (attacking midfielders) as well as forwards Richard Basangwa, Isaac “Falcao” Ogwang and Raymond Walugembe.
Ahead of the 16th edition, Gomba Ssaza will aim at clinching their 5th title adding to the 2004, 2009, 2014 and 2017 triumphs.
Bulemeezi are the defending champions of the tournament.
