Kiryowa was pleased with the terms offered and told the club fans he was ready to get started: “I feel so happy for the opportunity granted to extend my stay with The Cops. It’s a sign of trust and confidence in me as a player and I promise to do my best.
“I am going to work harder compared to the last season to help the club attain greater heights. We are all looking forward to achieving the best as we build our football profession.”
The attack-minded player first featured for the Farmers Football Club before joining “The Cops” last season.
Police CEO Fahad Lumu, who was present during the signing ceremony, said: “Kiryowa is a talented player, whom we had to keep in the team so that he can grow with us in our strides to become the best in the country.”
Kiryowa becomes the seventh player to renew a contract with Police after midfielder Yusuf Ssozi, right-back Denis Rukundo, winger Odong, left-back Musa Matovu, midfielders Bashir Kabuye and Mubarak Nsubuga.
On the signing front, the ambitious Police have already roped in five new faces among them Muwadda Mawejje, experienced midfielder Tony Mawejje, goalkeepers Tom Ikara and Sammon Oloka, defender Hassan Mohamood as well as left-back Eric Ssenjobe.
Police chairman Asan Kasingye has stated they will make sure they leave a mark in the league come the new season.
“We no longer just want to compete; we need to win trophies. We are former champions and it’s time to think big,” Kasingye told reporters.
“Football is a big enterprise in the world that doesn’t entertain mediocrity. We need to do the right thing like other clubs.”
Kasingye added it was the right time for the team to secure sponsors because Police are a big organisation and many people want to be a part of it.
