The CAF A licensed gaffer has signed a three year renewable contract with the club and takes over with immediate effect.
Bamweyana replaces Deo Sserwadda who handled the club on interim basis towards the end of 2019/2020 season.
“I’m excited about the project, the quality of the lads and the challenge to build onto the already booming club image. I and my technical team bring lots of experiences and lessons – coupled with our commitment and determination.” Reads Bamweyana’s statement.
“Our most ardent target is to help our players develop into the best version of themselves individually and as a group to help foster the club’s objectives.”
“In the long run, we should certainly look to challenge on all fronts for honours within 3 years.”
“The entire purple family should expect an attractive, creative and daring style of football – and lots of good times. But it goes without saying: a great dish takes time to prepare.”
“As a club, we are delighted to have Bamweyana as our new head coach. He knows our expectations and those of our dear fans and we are optimistic he can play a lead role to take the club to another level.” Club CEO Sula Kamoga.
He will be assisted by Richard Wasswa while Ali Kiggundu and Steven Bengo will also stay as part of the coaching staff.
The Purple Sharks finished their maiden campaign in the top tier in 10th position with 30 points from 25 games following an abrupt end to the league due to Covid19 pandemic.
