Onduparaka FC have completed the signing of striker Gabriel Matata on a one year renewable contract.
Matata returns to Onduparaka from regional league side Mvara Boys having previously featured for the Onduparaka Youth team (Ondunyiri) in 2018.
Touted as the next big thing in West Nile, Matata has been a transfer target of a number of Uganda Premier League sides but settled with the Caterpillars.
The 19-year-old striker attended to Anyafio, Arua Hill and Golden Treasure Primary Schools before turning up for the Onduparaka junior side.
Matata was the top scorer in the regional league in the 2018/19 season and scored 14goals in 10 games in the recently concluded 2019/20 season.
He guided Mvara Boys to the Round of 32 of the Uganda Cup finish after eliminating Uganda Premier League outfit Bul FC in the Round of 64.
Matata joins new recruits at the club who are Bony Musema, Kennedy Atibuni, Augustine Akoch, Nelson Opio, Jasper Okello and right back Jakisa Jerry.
