Were has in the recent past featured for Kiboga Young, Royal Giant, Blessed Sacrament Kimanya and Risah Standard High among others.

He is expected to boost Kyetume’s goalkeeping department that has Joel Mutakubwa as the club’s first choice glovesman.

Kyetume FC finished 11th in their debut Uganda Premier League season with 30 points collected from 25 games played.

They are expected to unveil Onduparaka duo of Muhammad Rashid and Ezra Bida alongside lanky striker Raymond Walugembe as their first signings in the ongoing transfer window.
