  • Reading time:3 min(s) read

It’s often a flamboyant gesture to leave a place in harmony for you to always find your way back. (A famous Luganda saying). To put it in context, however, Allan Munaaba finds himself back at the club that made him.

A gigantic left-back whose career flourished a lot with us makes a dramatic return to the club. Not as a player but a servant of the Football Club in the Department of Finance & Administration.

He will assume the position of Finance and Administration Officer with Uganda Revenue Authority as a beneficiary of good education background and royalty of service.

Since his departure from URA FC last year in 2019 to join Jinja-based side BUL FC (while there he played the entire season before permanently hanging his boots). he has developed more as a civil servant. 

Allan graduated with honors in the Bachelors of Business Administration (BBA) and he is currently pursuing his CPA.

Amongst the former players that have gone ahead to make a successful return to the authority as a working staff is Philip Obwinyi, David Kalungi, and the former defensive rock coach Simeon Masaba.

Allan’s smile cant hide his happiness being back to the club.

HIS SERVICE AS A PLAYER

Munaaba Allan joined URA FC in 2007 from SC Villa. A young player very talented and looking for a big opportunity in life. A new challenge for that matter.

Right from the onset, his positive attitude as a player was something definitely to write home about. He was a winner and that in its entirety was exhibited in the milestones he helped get the club to.

With him and his positive adrenaline, the club managed to register three Uganda Premier League titles, a Tusker Challenge Cup, and two Uganda Cups (Kakungulu Cups).

His impressive work while with us and his commitment to helping out his fellow players was key to squad development thereby gaining the greatest honor of his life. Being named captain for three years.

It was indeed an honor he held in high esteem, so much so that he led the team both on and off the pitch. An ideal role model if you ask.

The three years he was captain, he managed to register a lot of respect from his fellow players, the club hierarchy, the fans and of course, the viewers.

His illustrious career as a URA FC player goes for 12 years since the time of his inception to the squad and will for long be remembered as arguably one of the greatest captains the club has had.
