West Nile side Onduparaka FC has appointed George Lutalo as their next head coach for the next three years.
Lutalo who was recently appointed by FUFA to take over as head coach for the national women’s senior team will be asked to name his backroom staff but the long serving Ibrahim Kongo who has been at the club through thin and cold will be retained as the goalkeeping coach.
According to Arua based website www.westnilesports.com, Lutalo has already started conducting training sessions with the club and was spotted briefing some of the senior players about his philosophy and styles.
Onduparaka has been without a coach following the sacking of Harold Joseph Mutyaba towards the end of last season.
The Caterpillars endured one of their worst seasons since elevation to the topflight six years ago when they finished 12th with only 28 points after winning 8 matches and losing 14.
This subsided with a regular change in coaches whereby more than three of them sat in their dugout for the 2020/21 season.
Vialli Bainomugisha who had replaced Charles Livingston Mbabazi left at the start of the season, he was later replaced with Abu Mubarak Wamboya and he also left until the appointment of Mutyaba midway season.
George Lutalo comes with some vital experience having worked as assistant to Sam Ssimbwa at URA for the last three years.
He also served as head coach for Jinja based JMC Hippos when they played in the Uganda Premier league in 2015.
Lutalo was at the helms of another premier league side Soana FC (now Tooro United) in 2017 but his time here lasted only three months when he was sacked after he failed to register a single win in four matches
