Ugandan striker signs for Kenyan champions

SINAN RAJUB SENOGA

Newly crowned Kenya Premier League champions Tusker FC have completed the signing of Ugandan striker Deogracious Ojok, Swift Sports can reliably confirm.

Ojok put pen to paper on a two year contract with the Kenyan giants.

His transfer comes a month after he left UPL side BUL FC when his employment contract expired.

Ojok was one of BUL’s most reliable sources of goals for the past three seasons since he joined the club from JMC Hippos.

Last season, Ojok was BUL’s second top scorer in the league having scored seven goals and one in the Stanbic Uganda Cup.

He is now the second Ugandan player at Tusker after defender Rodgers Aloro who played an integral role in the club’s winning campaign that climaxed on Sunday.

Tusker were captained by Hashim Ssempala who left the club for Zambia’s Kabwe Warriors with about five games to the league climax.

As earlier reported by this website, The Brewers expressed interest in signing Mbarara City’s Henry Kitegenyi but the deal fell through since Mbarara City were not willing to sell the striker for cheap.

Tusker will be representing Kenya in the CAF Champions League for the first time since 2016.

They will face Alex Song’s club Arta Solar 7 of Djibouti next month with the aggregate winners of the fixture destined to play against Zamalek who received a bye in the opening round.
