UPL 2016 Awards: Focus on Goalkeeping Coach of the Season Nominee, Stephen ‘Billy’ Kiggundu

Arguably the most outspoken tactician in the country, Stephen Kiggundu aka Billy is amongst the best goalkeeping coaches in the country at the moment.

A former goalkeeper with Rwampara and Kinyara, Kiggundu started his coaching career in 2005 at Express under the stewardship of then youthful Kefa Kisala.

He did win the Uganda Cup with the Red Eagles in 2007 before he left for Simba and shortly joined KCCA in 2008 but never lasted long at both clubs.

The 39 year old is the only renowned Ugandan goalkeeping coach ever to handle a side in the Arab world when he moved Madjesi FC in Oman.

Up against Sadolin Paints’ Vincent Magada and The Saints’ Moses Oloya in the running for the goalkeeping coach of the season award – the first of its kind, the former student of St. Joseph Nagalama and Gombe SS keeps a low profile but hails his two goalkeepers.

I feel proud with working with some of the best goalkeepers in the country. When I joined Vipers, my target was to elevate them to national team status and I believe I have fulfilled the pledge with Watenga and Alitho playing in Cecafa and CHAN

Currently, Kiggundu is responsible for the safe hands of arguably the league’s best two goalkeepers; James Alitho and Ismail Watenga
