Santo to skipper Coastal Union



Harambee Stars International midfielder Jerry Santo has been appointed captain of Tanzanian top-tier side Coastal Union FC.

Confirming the news, the former Simba SC and Tusker FC player expressed his delight and said he was up to the task.

“I have been selected as the new team captain. It is a great honour for me as this shows that the coaches and management of the club have noticed my leadership qualities,” Santo said.

“I’m really happy and I look forward to enjoying the role, just like I have been enjoying my football since I joined this club,” he added.

Santo started his career at lower-tier side Dandora Youth and was discovered by the then Tusker coach James Nandwa while featuring for his team (Dandora Youth) in the Super Eight Football Tournament, and he signed him up in 2009.

He had a great season with Tusker in 2010 but crossed the border to join Tanzanian giants Simba SC at the close of the season.

He attended trials at Vietnamese top league side HAGL in August 2011 and the club was willing to offer him a two-year contract but the deal fell through after Simba and the club failed to agree.

He rejoined Tusker last year but was moved to his current club Coastal Union FC mid-season where he says he’s enjoying his time.

“So far everything is going on fine and I’m really enjoying my football,” Santos says. The team finished fifth in the Tanzanian top league, the Vodacom Premier League.
