Last season’s Uganda Premier League top scorer Geoffrey Sserunkuma leaves KCCA FC for Zambian side Buildcon FC on a one-and-a-half-year deal with an option of contract renewal.
Serunkuuma, who is also the season’s Most valuable Player (MVP), scored 31 goals in all competitions for KCCA FC last season and helped the team win their first ever domestic double (the Azam Uganda premier league and Uganda Cup).
Of the goals 21 were scored in the league, four in the CAF Champions League, two in the CAF Confederation Cup and four in the Uganda Cup.
The Cranes striker is the fourth KCCA player to head south in the last six months after Ivan Ntege joined Botswana outfit Township Rollers; and left back Joseph Ochaya and Herman Wasswa who both joined Lusaka Dynamos in March.
Sserunkuma has also played in Ethiopia with St George and in South Africa with Bloemfontein Celtic, Bidvest Wits and Vasco da Gama.
The 34-year-old also scored the lone goal against Cape Verde as Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic’s side picked three crucial points in their Afcon 2019 qualifying opener.
The Zambian league is becoming a favorite for Ugandan stars with players like Joseph Ochaya and Herman Wasswa at Lusaka Dynamos, while Jimmy Bageya at Napsa Stars and Davis Kasirye are at Zesco United.
