We are thrilled to announce that Shafik Kiryowa, our terrifying attacking midfielder has agreed to a three-year contract extension.

The agreement witnesses the continuation of a prosperous bond that has seen Shafik becoming a fundamental pillar in our attacking force since his arrival from Buganda Regional side Buikwe Red Stars FC.

Shafik has been an undeviating performer for the team, impressing both fans and management alike throughout the recent season.

Upon signing, Shafik said, “It takes a little bit of time I think to renew, but now everything is done so we just need to focus on what’s next.

“I think you can see last season, the team was always going upwards and we were close to qualifying, but unfortunately we couldn’t make it.

“I think we are in a good position to fight for everything. We have new signings as well. We just need to keep working hard, have a good vision, be positive and go for everything again.”

We couldn’t be more excited about what the future holds for Shafik and Lugazi FC as we head in for the upcoming season.
