KITENDE – Barely 24 hours after leaving Busoga United FC, David Bagoole has become a Vipers SC player.
The midfielder was confirmed to be on his way out of the Jinja based side on Friday morning, the same day he was announced as a Venom.
His signing was announced via the Vipers SC official website.
“There is a new man at St Mary’s Stadium in Kitende. And he is not just your ordinary player as he swaggers into the reigning champions’ home with pomp and flair. And unlike many other players, the 22-year-old maintains a calm demeanor despite being well-travelled football artist.” Noted Vipers SC.
Bagoole penned a three-year deal that will see him at Kitende until 2023.
He becomes Vipers’ fourth signing of the off-season, following into the footsteps of Disan Ggaliwango, Ibrahim Orit and Jamil Kariisa.
Speaking after signing for the Venoms, Bagoole expressed his delight to be joining the ‘best’ club in Uganda and also highlight the task ahead of him.
“I am very happy and proud to be the latest member of this special Vipers family. I believe this is the best club in the country and I promise to give my all,” the soft-spoken Bagoole said soon after being unveiled.
”My job will be simple. I want to help the club defend the Uganda Premier League (SUPL) as well as reach the CAF Champions League group stages.”
Bagoole is a stylish midfielder who creates lots of chances from the center of the pitch and will be a huge asset to the Venoms.
He started his footballing career at Busembatia Town Council, moved to SC Villa in 2014 before joining Sofapaka of Kenya towards the end of 2015.
After one and half years at the Kenyan club, La Passe of Seychelles signed him in July 2016 until February 2017 when he returned home and joined BUL FC. In between those movements, Bagoole also enjoyed short stints at Police FC and Baza Holdings.
In November 2017, he joined OC Bukavu Dawa of the Democratic Republic of Congo from where Busoga United signed him at the start of the 2018/19 football season.
Vipers head coach Fred Kajoba termed Bagoole as a major coup.
“There is no doubt we have signed one of the best midfielders in the business,” said Kajoba.
“I am convinced he will deliver. He has proven his abilities over time and there is no doubt about him.”
Vipers are the reigning Uganda Premier League champions after finishing top of the pile with 54 points from 25 games last season.
