Edward Golola is the new head coach at FUFA Big League side, Kitara Football Club until the end of the season.

The Hoima based club has been without a head coach since the disappearance act of Samuel Kawalya who absconded from duty after just two matches into the season.

Golola was a long serving coach at Vipers Sports Club and had been job-less for more than seven months now.

He takes over the job that that has been occupied by Doka Magara, Kawalya’s former assistant coach.

The development was confirmed to Kawowo Sports on Sunday by the club Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Joshua “Taata Angels” Atugonza.


Yes, we have hired Edward Golola as head coach for Kitara Football Club until the end of the season. The primary goal to see the club promoted to the Uganda Premier League. We have trust and confidence in the coach for his experience

Golola officially started off work on Sunday with a training session with a training session at the Boma play ground in Hoima Municipality on Sunday.

His first assignment at hand will be this Thursday as they host Kansai Plascon at their Kigaya play ground, 10 KM away from Hoima town.

This season thus far, a star studded Kitara side has found themselves with mixed results, two draws, two losses and two wins in the Rwenzori group.

Senior players as Derrick Tekkwo, David Ndibabwe, Musa Docca, goalkeeper Chrispus Kusiima, John Adriko, George Ssenkaaba, Alex “Benzema” Kitata among others remain the back bone of the team as they seek promotion to the 2019/20 Uganda Premier League.
