Police FC defender Henry Katongole has been added onto the Uganda Cranes provisional squad preparing for CHAN Cameroon 2020.
The lanky central defender joined the rest of the players on Monday evening at the Cranes Paradise Hotel in Kisaasi and was part of the Tuesday morning session at GEMS Cambridge International School in Butabika.
According to the Coach Johnathan McKinstry, Katongole has been on the list of players who they monitored during the Star Times Uganda Premier League Games.
“Despite our communication prior to the camp to all the clubs, the information we got on certain players wasn’t clear as we would have liked it. We are still assessing some players like John Revita who has a problem with his knee and for precaution measures we bring in a Center back and who was one of the players in our discussion when we were selecting the initial training squad and deserved to come in. We have not ruled out Revita because we are still monitoring his progress. We are confident that Henry will compete that he will compete for a place in CHAN’ Said McKinstry.
KCCA FC, Proline FC and Kyetume FC players were released to join their teams because their teams had Uganda Premier League engagements and were not part of the day two training session.
According to the coach Johnathan McKinstry there was an agreement between the Uganda Cranes Technical team and the Uganda Premier League Secretariat to release players whenever their clubs were engaged.
The Cranes will be engaged in a Pre CHAN three nations tournament in Kampala from 17th – 21st March where nations like Zambia and Mali will take part.
