Goalkeeper Wagima completes move to Soltilo Bright Stars


Uganda Premier League side Soltilo Bright Stars have completed the signing goalkeeper Benson Wagima from Busoga United.

Wagima returns to the side he once featured for on a two year employment.

He will compete with Godwin Buule and Simon Tamale for a starting place at Bright Stars. Wagima was named the best goalkeeper in the 2018/19 season Uganda Cup.

He is a former Jinja Municipal Council Hippos Football Club, Bright Stars (first stint) and Kirinya Jinja SS FC (now Busoga United) player.

Wagima joins former Kitara FC midfielder Jamir Nvule Kisitu, former KCCA FC forward Samuel Sekamatte Kayongo, defender Ibrahim Kibumba and Hippos forward Saddam Masereka as the other new recruits at the Mwererwe based side.

The club has also signed youngsters Emmanuel Loki, Gabriel Elagu and Marvin Ssemayange while defenders Andrew Kaggwa and Derrick Ngoobi have renewed their contracts.

Soltilo Bright Stars will be under the stewardship of former Proline FC head coach Baker Mboowa with Simon Peter Mugerwa as his assistant.

The club recently changed its name from Bright Stars to Soltilo Bright Stars. They finished 12th last season with 29 points when the campaign was abruptly ended due to the outbreak of Coronavirus pandemic in the country.
