OFFICIAL: BUL FC Confirm Departure Of Several Players
Bidco Uganda Limited Football Club (BUL FC’s) exit list has grown to nine players after the Eastern Giants decided to part ways with five more players.
The squad overhaul has continued at BUL FC with the club confirming five more departures in their team ahead of the forthcoming season.
The club has today announced that it has parted ways with Paul Ssekulima, Aggrey Madoi and their junior team graduates Edrine Cavan Mawerere, Herbert Onyango and Owen Mukisa.
“BUL FC has today parted ways with five more players, including two junior team graduates,” reads club statement on their official website.
“Paul Ssekulima joined the Eastern Giants in January 2023 but both parties have agreed to end the contract on mutual terms.”
“Aggrey Madoi is another player set to leave the club. Since 2020, Madoi has been one of the vital pillars at the team, helping BUL reach the first ever Uganda cup final in 2021 before playing a key part as the Eastern Giants won the competition a year later,” the club added.
“Our junior team graduates – Edrine Cavan Mawerere, Herbert Onyango and Owen Mukisa have also left the club. The latter shone to fame when he became the youngest player ever to captain the Eastern Giants and also scored a 26th minute goal against Express to send BUL to the Uganda Cup final in 2021 at FUFA Technical Centre.”
“We highly appreciate their efforts and commitment to the club; and wish them the best in their future endeavors,” BUL FC concluded.
The fivesome join Richard Wandyaka, Ivan Wani, Ibra Nsimbe and goalkeeper Emmanuel Kalyowa who earlier left the club following the expiration of their contracts.
BUL FC have already bolstered their squad by signing Gerald Ogweti, Lawrence Tezikya and Joel Madondo while Hillary Onek extended his contract at the club for further more three years.
Ahead of the 2023/24 campaign, BUL FC also announced the appointment of Abbey Bogere Kikomeko as their new head coach replacing Simeone Masaba who steered the club into the latter stages of the season after the departure of Alex Isabirye to Vipers.
