BUL FC have announced the signing of former Kyetume FC defender Ben Tahomera.
The lanky centre back joins the self-proclaimed Eastern Giants on a two year contract until 2024.
Tahomera who previously featured for MYDA as well believes joining BUL FC is the right decision and wants to win trophies with the reigning Stanbic Uganda Cup holders.
“I feel BUL is the right club I should play for. It’s one of the biggest in the country and always competitive on all fronts,” he told the club media.
“Playing for it is an honour for me. Now I want to win the league, defend the Uganda cup as well as put up a good performance in the confederation cup.”

Coach Alex Isabirye believes the new defender will offer the right balance to the BUL backline.
“Tahomera can defend as well as score goals. He still has a lot to learn but he is a young player who can play football and has a lot of potential.”
“Last season we faced difficulties in defending and conceded a lot because we did not have the luxury to rotate, and that is why we are bringing in players like him who can defend very well.”
“Our team is now having a right mix of young and experienced players, and if we blend them together well, we shall get what we want.”
Tahomera is known for his superior aerial abilities, calmness on the ball and neat passing, and without doubt, he will improve our defense.
