Police FC have made their fourth signing of the summer by completing the transfer of goalkeeper Tom Ikara.
The shot-stopper joins from fellow Startimes Uganda premier league club KCCA FC and has put pen to paper on a two-year deal.
The shotstopper joins the cops as a free agent after being released by KCCA FC due to failure to cement a permanent place in the Mike Mutebi coached side after his move to Lugogo from Kirinya Jinja ss (current Busoga United).
Before joining KCCA FC, Ikara had established himself as one of Uganda’s best goalkeeping prospects while still playing for Kirinya Jinja ss but failed to emulate his goalkeeping heroics at KCCA FC and he spent last season on loan at Mbarara City FC.
Ikara had attracted interest from several Startimes Uganda Premier League sides, including Vipers SC , while URA FC and Express FC were also said to be tracking him.
Ikara joins Police FC in the midst of a goalkeeping crisis with first-choice keeper Davis Mutebi romoured to be on the verge of leaving the club.
He becomes the fourth signing for the Abdallah Mubiru coached side after the capture of veteran midfielder Tonny Mawejje, defenders Eric Ssenjobe and Hassan Muhammad as they seek to strengthen their current squad.
