Enock Walusimbi, a defender from Uganda, has been formally introduced as a member of the Peterhead team. He transfers from Express FC to the Scottish third-tier team.
The former Express captain has been signed by Peterhead, and a transaction will be finalized after he receives a work permit and FA approval.
“We are delighted to announce the signing of Ugandan defender Enock Walusimbi. We are now just awaiting clearance from the Scottish Football Association and his work visa. We said we would leave no stone unturned in terms of getting players to the club and Enock’s signing is another example of that.”
While the Ugandan defender was undergoing trials in Scotland, Peterhead was keeping an eye on his condition.
Manager Jim Mclnally is a major fan of the defender.
“We made a move for Enock about four weeks ago and there have been a few hurdles to overcome but the contract has been signed now which is a huge step forward and a bit of a coup for the club.” said manager Jim Mclnally.
Walusimbi was expected to sign with Dundee United after impressing during his trial period there as a member of the team Fundi project, but he was unable to win over the club’s new management.
After Sadat Anaku, a striker from the Fundi project, signed with Dundee United, Walusimbi is the second player to land a lucrative contract in Scotland.
