Kirinya Jinja SSS football club have appointed CAF License B holder Abbey Bogere Kikomeko as their coach on an interim basis.
Kikomeko who is on the return in Kirinya’s dug out for third time temporarily fills the void left by Charles Ayiekoh Lukula who resigned to pursue coaching studies.
Kikomeko was unveiled to the media by the club’s vice president Godfrey Osodo Bwire on Thursday morning.
Bwire also revealed that Kikomeko had been named the club’s technical director in preparation for the second half of the season before Ayiekoh’s untimely threw in the towel.
” Following our performance in the first half of the season, we agreed to appoint Kikomeko as our technical director because he has the abilities. He now takes over from Ayiekoh who requested us to leave so that he can attend coaching studies.”
” Kikomeko will be our interim coach as we continue to look for the head coach.”
Abbey Bogere Kikomeko is the coach who navigated Kirinya to a topflight promotion in 2016. He also remembered for guiding the Jinja club to premier league safety in the closing stages of their debut season of 2016-17.
Kikomeko will begin his reign with a trip to Kitende as Kirinya takes on Vipers. The new man in the dug out says he is aware of what is expected of him and will do exactly that.
” I am not new here (at Kirinya). I am here to fix some things and see that the club gets to where it deserves to be.” Kikomeko said.
” Our performance in the first round wasn’t that pleasant that’s why we sit in the 11th position on the table. I will try my level best to see that we attain a respectable finish.”
” Tomorrow, we play against Vipers a side that is winless in the last two games and are on the eve of exiting the CAF competitions a few days ago. We are aware they need the three points but we also badly need maximum points. So everyone should expect a tough game. “
Kirinya Jinja SSS have managed only 4 wins this term, drew 7 times and lost on four occasions, a record that subjects them to the 11th place with 19 points.
