Vipers SC have sealed the signature of Soltilo Bright Stars midfielder Marvin Youngman.

Swift Sports Uganda understands that the midfielder has put pen to paper on a two year employment contract with the Uganda Premier league champions.

URA FC was also very interested in the midfielder as a potential replacement for out of contract Ivan Sserubiri.

Youngman was instrumental for Bright Stars during the 2021/22 season and helped them overcome relegation. He is also remembered for scoring the all important goal as Bright Stars eliminated KCCA in the Stanbic Uganda cup at the round of 32.

His sensational performances in the previous campaign saw him earn a national team call up and made his competitive debut for the Cranes 2-0 defeat to Algeria in AFCON 2023 Qualifier earlier this month.

At Vipers, he will battle with Siraje Sentamu who was recently named the best Midfielder in the league during the Pilsner Uganda Premier league awards.

Youngman is a product of Friends of Soccer Academy and has previously featured Hima FC before joining Bright Stars. He also featured for Busujju and Bulemeezi in prestigious Masaza Cup competition.

In 2019, he led Bulemeezi who were under the stewardship of Simon Peter Mugerwa to the Masaza cup triumph.
