Stima bolster squad options

Western Stima have just added a number of players to their squad for the upcoming season.

Stima have brought in Yusuf Siruma from Karuturi Sport, Hedmond Ochieng from Chemelil Sugar and youngster Eddy Oguta.

They are also close to securing the signature of Uganda Cranes winger Dan Wagaluka, who has been in training with them.

Head coach Francis Baraza insists that he is happy with the new arrivals but is open to making further additions if necessary.

“We have added a number of players to tour squad,” said Baraza.

“Siruma comes from Karuturi Sport. He will bring experience, versatility and know-how to the back line. He is also a proven set-piece taker so will aid us in that sense, added to the fact that he can play in several positions.

“Ochieng is a player I know well who has had an impact at Chemelil and I am glad to have him here. He will bring authority into the side and I will be happy to have him here.

“The youngster Oguta comes from a family of footballers and has proved himself sufficiently to have a place in the side for the coming season. He will grow into an excellent player.

“The arrival of Wagaluka is a major one for us as he is a player every club dreams of. He is a proven international for the Uganda Cranes and has played in Rwanda, Tanzania and his homeland Uganda.

“We will not stop there, but only if we find players who can do a good job for us and whose class is up there. “All the above signings will only make Stima a good side and lift us towards our target, or even higher of finishing in the top eight in the Tusker Premier League.”

The new signings complement the recent acquisition of Willis Ochieng, Dan Makori and Francis Ocholla.
