URA FC can confirm that Andrew Okiring Isiagi has joined the club on a three-year deal. The 23-year-old completes this most anticipated move following his short-lived spell as a free agent.
Okiring, who is a young brother to former URA FC forward Daniel Opolot Isiagi commenced his football career in the United States and has since featured for both the U20s and U23s Uganda National Teams.
His adventure in the Uganda Premier League on the other hand started at Police FC before he switched to FUFA Big League side Proline FC.
It’s these exposures that have made him prepared for the challenge posted by this move to the Tax Collectors. He needed no invitation to express his excitement at joining his new venture:
“Am very happy to join one of the biggest clubs in the country, there is a good program here concerning young players like myself and so I didn’t require much convincing to make the decision.” He said pointedly.
When confronted with a question about competition for positions in the team, Okiring was quite quick to point out his willingness to learn from the mature players at the club and his unwavering commitment to hard work.
He would further speak about expectations at the club during his stay with winning trophies obviously taking precedence but also putting in the work to compete both locally and internationally.
It must be remembered that Okiring is a right-back with an unquenchable thirst for offensive play so there will be no shosck seeing him asked to operate further upfront during some games.
