Like most goalkeeping coaches, Moses Oloya a.k.a Hugo Boss is a former goalkeeper although he was always second choice.

A former player at both SC Villa and KCCA’s Junior side City Lads, Oloya started out as a player at Gulu United.

He won the CECAFA Kagame Cup in 2004 with SC Villa in Mwanza, Tanzania but was third choice behind Denis Onyango and Yasin Mugabi.

He also won the 2006 Uganda Cup trophy with URA, then coached by now current SC Villa tactician Deo “Kajambiya’ Sserwadda.

Alongside Vipers’ Stephen ‘Billy’ Kiggundu and Sadolin Paints’ Vincent Magada, he is in contention for the inaugural Goalkeeping Coach of the Season Award of which the winner will be known on August 12 at the highly anticipated glamorous occasion at Serena Hotel, Kampala.

“First of all, it’s an honour to be among the nominees,” he stated. “I am coming up against experienced heads like Kiggundu but am confident of winning the gong. My works are available for all to see,” he added.

During the campaign, Oloya, a sibling to former Uganda Cranes goalie Posnet Omony coached at SC Victoria University and The Saints.

At SC VU, he worked with former U-17 goalkeeper Eric Kibowa and Ramadhan Male while at The Saints; he did work with former teammate Yasin Mugabi and he thinks he is responsible for his recapturing of form.

“I am responsible for Mugabi’s rejuvenation after his slip in form that led to him being loaned by KCCA.”

Currently linked with a move to URA, Oloya has worked with a number of goalkeepers and most have had call ups with the national team.

He has worked with Jamal Salim Magoola, Nicholas Sebwato and Emmanuel Opio (KCCA), Ali Kimera, Benjamin Ochan, Eric Kibowa and Ramadhan Male (SCVU) plus Yasin Mugabi (The Saints)
