Midfielder SaidiKyeyune will captain URA FC on Friday as the tax collectors kick off their 2014-15 Uganda Premier League season against Bright Stars at Lugazi.
Kyeyune has been an integral part of URA FC alongside Oscar Agaba, Owen Kasule and Ali Fenisince joining from Maroons in August 2011.
The 20-year-old replaces right back Simeon Massa and will be deputised by goal keeper Brian Bwete.
“This is a big responsibility but I have the confidence of these players which I think will make my work easy,” Kyeyune said.
“I have been a captain before with Seeta United and Misindye, so leading players is not new to me at all,” he said.
Kyeyune was a thorn in Bright Stars’ midfield last season and hopes the opening game will be vital.
“The opening game is always important but we have prepared well and we are eager to win every match,” Kyeyune told urafc.co.ug at the team’s training grounds in Gayaza. “We will not go in there thinking they are an easy opponent. We intend to do our best and win.”
