Vipers Sports Club have announced Edward Golola as their new head coach.
Golola returns to The Venoms for his third stint (2009-2011, 2014-2015) at the helm having served as an assistant coach to Portuguese tactician Miguel Da Costa (2017-2018) and Kenyan Michael Nam Ouma (half 2019).
“I am immensely proud to be returning as head coach. Everyone knows my love for this club and the history we have shared, however, my sole focus is on the job in hand and preparing for the season ahead,” Golola remarked according to the Vipers website.
Club President Lawrence Mulindwa confirmed the new development to the players during the morning training session at St Mary’s Stadium.
“As the executive we can confirm Edward Golola as our next coach and we will give him all the support he needs this season.”
Golola will be deputised by Richard Wasswa, who also returns to the club for his third spell.
He replaces Ouma whose 6-month contract expired last month and was not renewed.
The technical team that was dissolved earlier has been reappointed with Ram Nyakana Mpuga (fitness coach), Edward Ssali (second assistant coach), Mathius Kassagga (physiotherapist) and Moses Oloya as goalkeeping coach.
Vipers SC will start the 2019/20 football season with participation in the Pilsner Super eight tournament.
The opening game will be on July 31 against Proline FC at StarTimes Stadium, Lugogo.
