URA’s Namanya Pledges More After Fine UPL Debut Season

URA FC midfielder Norman Namanya has expressed gratitude for his quite impressive start to life in the Uganda Premier League (UPL).

The former Kigezi Homeboyz and New Villa attacking midfielder just joined URA from Entebbe FC at the beginning of the 2023/24, but he gained momentum so quick, going on to become an integral part of the Tax Collector’s attacking force.

In another rather disappointing season that URA finished eighth of 16 teams with 40 points from 29 games, Namanya, who was playing in the top division for his very first time directly contributed to ten of the club’s 30 goals in the league – he scored five and assisted five more.

“This season has laid a great foundation for me,” Namanya expressed, as he has shared his thoughts on his inaugural season in the UPL to the club media.

“I’m hopeful for an even better season in 2024/25. My aim is to improve my game further, to contribute more to the team, and help the achieve its goals,” added.

Further opening up about his experiences, achievements, and goals in the just concluded season, the player owed it all to his teammates, coaches, and fans alike.

“I’m truly grateful for the opportunities I’ve had this season, scoring five goals and assisting five times in my first season (in the UPL) is something I’m very proud of,” Namanya reiterated.

“The support from the coaching staff, my teammates, and the fans has been incredible. They have all played a huge role in helping me settle in and perform well.”

Next season promises to be another exciting journey for Namanya who will be working under newly appointed coach, Alex Isabirye as the club continues to seek for silverware.
