Defender Walusimbi bids farewell to Bright Stars ahead of Express move


Defender Enock Walusimbi has officially bade farewell to his former club Soltilo Bright Stars Football Club after serving three seasons.

As earlier reported by this website, Walusimbi signed a two year contract with Express FC early last month and he is expected to be unveiled by the Wankulukuku outfit in the coming days.

The lanky center back disseminated his appreciation message to the Soltilo Bright Stars management, coaching staff, players and fans via his Facebook page,

” I would like to thank Soltilo Bright Stars FC family, management, coaching staff, players and above all the fans of the club for the great love, care and respect shown to me during my three years at the club. I wish the club all the best in the Uganda Premier League.”

Walusimbi joined Bright Stars in 2017 from Regional League side Luweero United having previously featured for Nansana United FC (2013-15) and Shafranto FC (2011-13)

His game reading, man-marking and timely clearances made him a key figure at Bright Stars as they made their first-ever Stanbic Uganda Cup final in 2018 and survived relegation last season

He won the inaugural edition of the FUFA Drum tournament with Buganda province in 2018 and also plays for Ffumbe Clan in the Bika By’abaganda Football Tournament.

Walusimbi is expected to bolster Express’ central defense department that also has Isa Lumu, Arthur Kiggundu, Cyrus Kibande and new signing Richard Bbosa among others.

The Red Eagles have so far unveiled 14 players who include Godfrey Lwesibawa, Abel Eturude, Charles Musiige, Mahad Yaya Kakooza, Faizal Sekyanzi, Dennis Otim, Chrispus Kusiima, Mustafa Kiragga, Baker Sakah, Denis Mubuya Mugerwa, Isaac Nsengiyunva, John Toki Byamukama, Richard Bbosa and Ibrahim Kayiwa.
