Scottish Premiership club St. Mirren FC have signed Ugandan defender Elvis Bwomono on a contract until the end of the season with an option of extending it to one year.

He will be available to play when the January transfer window officially opens.

Bwomono has joined St. Mirren as a free agent after his contract with Iceland’s IBV Vestmannaeyjar expired last month.

He had trials with the club and impressed coach Steve Robinson who has been in search of a right back following the recent injury of his first choice Ryan Strain.

Bwomono was born in Uganda on 29th November 25 years ago but left for England at the age of three.

He had his youth career at QPR before joining Southend United as a 14 year old and left the club in 2021 before joining IBV last year.

He has six caps with the Cranes having made his debut in a 1-0 win over South Sudan in the AFCON Qualifiers in November 2020 at Kitende.

Bwomono was also part of Paul Put’s maiden squad and featured in the 1-0 win over Somalia last month.
