Monday afternoon, StarTimes Uganda Premier League side Police FC finalized the signing of former Uganda Cranes midfielder Tony Mawejje who joined the Cops on a two-year deal.
Mawejje is an iconic and successful footballer with an ideal character to lead Police into a new era of rebuilding the club back to its heights according to head coach Abdullah Mubiru.
“He’s a proven professional footballer who brings more than just experience to the club,” Mubiru told Kawowo Sports before adding;
“The young players will learn a lot from him and everyone at the club is really excited to have him around,” he added.
The midfielder previously played at Police between 2005 and 2006 guiding them to the 2006 CECAFA club championship before he left for URA FC.
Onto his return after 14 years while away, he finds his former side in a drowning state, faced with a number of challenges on and off the pitch.
Police has not won any silverware since 2006, they’ve struggled to finish inside the top positions on the SUPL table where they belonged during Mawejje’s first stint.
A number of reliable players to build around have left the club mostly due to poor payment and hunger for success. But club chairman Asan Kasingye is looking forward to reviving the above.
Therefore, Mawejje’s signature should be an inspiration to lots of players staying at the club and also others joining the club.
“We shall make more additions to the team in positions we are lacking as we also try to keep some of our best players,” Mubiru noted.
In addition to Mawejje, the 2005 league winners have acquired the services of defender Hassan Mahmood on a two-year contract as well, from Onduparaka FC.
The midfield gem played for Masaka LC, KCCA, Police and URA locally while he played for Haugesund in Norway, IBV Vestmannaeyja, Valur FC and Throttur FC in Iceland plus Albanian side Tirana FC while Al-Arab SC in Kuwait was his last foreign club in 2019.
Police survived relegation by a whisker when they finished 13th on the 16-team SUPL log one point above the relegation zone after FUFA cancelled the football season in Uganda due to the coronavirus pandemic.
