With most of the leagues drawing to a close, Ugsports explores Uganda internationals who will be playing in the lower divisions or moving on to greener pastures.

Kizito William Luwagga – Hapoel Kfar Saba.

The Uganda Cranes attacker has been an integral part for Hapoel Kfar Saba’s unsuccessful season which saw them get relegated with matches to spare.

Out of the 30 games he played for the club, Kizito Luwagga managed to score 7 goals. He was the club’s 2nd top scorer only bettered by Israeli’s Fadida Omar with 8 goals. During the season, Luwagga Kizito received 3 yellow cards and one red card.

A move to mid table clubs in the Ligat ha’Al is a likely possibility given the status of the former Rio Ave Midfielder.

Elvis Bwomono – SouthEnd United.

Elvis Bwomono’s South End confirmed relegation on the second last weekend of the English League 2. The team spent most of the 2020/2021 season in the bottom half and it was no surprise that they were relegated to the National League.

On a personal milestone, Elvis’ performances were impressive as the defender played 41 games while scoring a single goal and two assists to his name. He was mainly used as a right back and he made the position his own.

He may opt on staying to help South End fight for promotion back in League 2.

Uche Ikpeazu – Wycombe

Wycombe fought until the last minute but it was too late for the team which spent most of the 2020/2021 season at the bottom of the English Championship table. The 3 wins out of the last 4 games meant that Wycombe finished the season 22nd on the table just one point behind Derby County who narrowly survived relegation.

Ikpeazu’s commitment to Wycombe’s survival was witnessed when he decided to stay at the club rather than respond yo Uganda Cranes crucial qualifiers against Burkina Faso and Malawi.

He scored 6 goals and assisted 3 in 31 matches he appeared for Wycombe this season. He was the club’s leading scorer and a transfer to a championship club is more likely as we head into the summer transfers.

Jordan Obita – Wycombe.

Ugandan born English Midfielder Jordan Obita had a season to forget having played only 9 games and most of them coming off the bench for Wycombe. Along with Ikpeazu, the midfielder is likely to look for new pastures in search of first team football next season.

Edrisa Lubega – Pribram

The acquisition of Edrisa Lubega came in too late to save Pribram’s season as the club’s hopes for survival heavily lies on results elsewhere with only 3 matches left to the closure of the Czech first division.

Lubega became an instant hit, scoring 2 goals and an assist in the 7 games he has played so far for the Czech outfit. He is expected to stay at the club and help them attain promotion in case they are relegated.
