Uganda Cranes defender Elvis Bwomono Okello has signed a contract extension with Scottish Premiership side St. Mirren FC.

Bwomono recently joined St. Mirren in December last year on a short term contract until the end of the season but his impressive exploits have earned him a new contract.

His newly signed contract will now see him play for the Saints until summer 2025.

The Uganda Cranes right back has played 14 games for the Saints including 12 in the league and two in the Scottish FA Cup.

“The initial deal was due to run until the summer with the club holding the option to extend by a further year. The club has now taken up the option to further Elvis’ stay in Paisley.” Read part of the club statement.

Bwomono was born in Uganda and left for England at an early age of three years. He played for Southend United between 2017 and 2021 before joining Iceland’s IBV Vestmannaeyjar.

 “I’m delighted to be staying for another year. Since I came to the club in December everyone has made me feel really welcome and a real part of it so I’m happy to staying here.” Bwomono says.

“It’s probably the most enjoyable time I’ve had in football both on and off the park. It’s a great squad and I’m excited for next season.” He adds

Bwomono who has eight caps with Uganda, made his Cranes debut in 2020 against South Sudan at Kitende.

Scotland is also home to Uganda Cranes defenders Bevis Mugabi and Toby Sibbick who play for Motherwell and Hearts respectively.
