Vipers Sports Club players have had a special visit from former national football team captain who dropped in on a training session at the St Mary’s stadium.
Andy Mwesigwa paid the Venoms a visit and enjoyed watching their two hour session under their Portuguese born coach Miguel Da Costa.
Mwesigye, who was a pillar in the Cranes backline for a decade or so, took the opportunity to use his spare time to check on the Vipers players and how they were preparing themselves for the upcoming 2017-18 football season.
He was not only impressed by the commitment, passion and determination the players exhibited but also the wealth of talent that is being groomed at the St Mary’s stadium.
“The players’ spirits are high and I am impressed that everyone is fighting to give their all. The future is bright for these players and Vipers,” said Mwesigwa.
The former Cranes defender was greeted by former teammate and Vipers captain Nico Wadada, along with midfielder Mike Sserumaga, Ismail Watenga and strikers Tonny Odur and Erisa Ssekisambu.
Meanwhile Moses Waiswa returned but will join the rest of the Venoms after next week after the Cranes CHAN qualifier return leg against South Sudan slated for this Saturday.
Vipers coach Miguel Da Costa embarked on the pre season preparations last week and will be hoping for a more fruitful 2017-18 football season having missed out on winning silverware in the previous campaign.
Monday’s training included two sessions and the same is expected in Tuesday’s practice.
