We say goodbye to Gift Fred, who played an important role in the SC Villa team. Gift led us to a commendable third-place finish in the previous Uganda Premier League season, where we were almost champions but lost to URA 1-0 in the last game at Muteesa II Stadium in Wankulukuku. This loss allowed Vipers to win the championship.
Gift became a free agent when his contract ended last month and has now joined Tanzanian champions, Young Africans.
In a heartfelt message to his teammates and the club, Gift expressed his emotions and described SC Villa as a wonderful family. He was grateful for their positive working relationship.
Gift’s impact was immense, and he was a solid defender on the field. His outstanding performances earned him a place in the Uganda Premier League team of the 2022/2023 season. He was also nominated for the best defender of the season at the SUPL awards, which is a testament to his remarkable abilities.
As Gift moves on to the next stage of his career, we thank him for his unwavering dedication and contribution to SC Villa. His legacy will always be remembered, and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors. Once a Jogoo, always a Jogoo!
