Uganda Premier League side Express FC head coach Wasswa Bbosa has confirmed defender Enock Walusimbi as the new club captain.
The defender joined the six time Uganda Premier League champions on a two year employment from Bright Stars in the ongoing transfer window.
“Walusimbi has been captain everywhere he’s played a feat that speaks volumes about his leadership qualities. The technical team therefore felt the need to select him.” Revealed Bbosa on the club website.
Walusimbi replaces Disan Galiwango who was the club skipper during the previous campaign and will be deputised by custodian Mathias Muwanga and youngster Desmond Kaneene.
