Uganda U17 Mens National Team player Mwanje Elvis Eddy has been promoted to KCCA FC senior team.
Mwanje, a midfielder, is a graduate of the KCCA FC Soccer Academy. He is a budding talent that has showed so much promise during the time he has been playing in the academy.
Just like it has been a norm for the club to promote its players from the academy, Mwanje joins a list of the players that have played for the Junior side and later promoted to senior side.
In the current KCCA FC squad, Mwirusi Ali, Sadat Anaku, Musa Ramathan, Ayella Dominic, Peter Magambo, Herbert Achai, Kizza Bukenya, Julius Poloto, Joseph Kafumbe and Jurua Hassan are all graduates of the KCCA FC Soccer Academy.
Mwanje joined KCCA FC in 2019 and played for KCCA FC Junior Team in the FUFA Juniors League in 2019/20 season.
The 17 year old has made a big impression at Lugogo since he started training with the KCCA FC Senior Team in 2020 while playing in the academy.
Mwanje made his senior debut as a substitute in the Uganda Cup against Masindi’s Doves in 2020. Since then, the teenager has not looked back and has been impressive.
In December 2020, the teenager won the CECAFA U17 Mens Championships with the Uganda 17 side in Kigali, Rwanda.
Mwanje Elvis Eddy spoke to kccafc.co.ug and had this to say;
I feel so happy to be promoted to KCCA FC Senior Team. From The day I walked into the soccer academy, my goal was to make it to the senior team.
