Onduparaka FC runaway striker Medi Kyeyune is the newest recruit in the UPDF FC army which is currently regrouping to reign supreme over the Uganda Premier League.
The industrious forward just returned from Somalia to complete a two-year deal and claim his badge as a parole officer with the Army side ahead of the new season.
He will be a resident and subject to the Bombo Military Barracks playground rule for at least up to 2023 and it will be incumbent on him to train but also play with the team.
“East or West, home is best. And now I am back here to make an impact with UPDF,” the forward, full of optimism, told Football256.
“I am a striker and it does not matter where I play from, home or away, I want to score goals and that is why I am here, to help the team win whenever called upon,” he added.
Kyeyune earlier this year had deserted the Caterpillars citing incompetence and unprofessionalism especially regarding what he termed as contract breach.
He unceremoniously left the Arua side for Elman SC in Somalia following claims of unfair treatment and unsettled arrears.
Meanwhile, Kyeyune makes a list of the thirteen players UPDF has signed this season. The long and elastic list also includes players from both the topflight clubs, Big league and regional leagues among others.
The players include long servant Brian Bwete, Yasin Sabir and Musa Mudde as the club seemingly intends to blend fresh legs with experience.
The other nine are; Yiga Farouk, Augustine Akoch, Shaban Wasswa, Douglas Oyirwoth, Donato Okello, Sulaiman Kimbugwe, Rogers Adriko, Ivan Ahimbisibwe, Rodgers Mugisha and Farouk Yiga.
The belief however is that there are many yet to be confirmed by the club but already contracted and training with the Army side as they gear up for the new season slated for kick-off in October.
It is also imperative to remember that Brian Ssenyondo took over UPDF managerial duties from Kefa Kisala who had led the club to a convincing 8th position with 37 points last season, after gaining promotion to the top division the previous term.
