Douglas Bamweyana has been named as the new SC Villa coach replacing Moses Basena who resigned last week.
Basena threw in the towel at the club after club failed to win any of their eight StarTimes Uganda Premier League matches in the 2018/19 season.
Bamweyana, who had a brief stint at Express FC last season, will be assisted by Simon Mugerwa who will also work to re-establish the defunct Jogoo Young with experienced Sam Timbe the Technical Director.
The trio is seen as one to revitalise the club as they fight to stay in the division following a false start to the campaign.
SC Villa are third from bottom with four points and face Nyamityobora on Friday in a relegation six pointer.
