Milton Karisa is the new Vipers Sports Club captain, the Kitende outfit have announced.
The Uganda Cranes winger replaces long serving Halid Lwaliwa, who departed for North Macedonian side, FK Bregalnica Stip this week.
Lwaliwa leaves St Mary’s Stadium, Kitende after eight successful seasons, including the last one in which he led them to the StarTimes Premier League (SUPL) title.
Karisa now has to lead the Venoms both on the continent and in the domestic league title defence.
“It’s a privilege to be handed the armband full time,” Karisa told the club website.
“I did it on a few occasions during pre-peason when Lwaliwa was out, but as I said, it’s a real privilege to be the club’s captain.”
