Yes, I renewed my contract by another year. I had one year running and there was another season remaining. Now, I will keep at the club for at least another two years. I thank the club management especially the chairperson Diana Nyago for the due support accorded to the club which translated to good results on the field of play.
Kirinya has been unstoppable during the season with splendid performances which saw them complete the 2017/18 season in 5th place with 43 points behind champions Vipers, KCCA, Sports Club Villa Jogoo and Onduparaka.
Meanwhile, the club named a new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Paul Mukembo who joined from Bugembe Junior Football Club.
Mukembo takes over the CEO duties from Ibrahim Kongola who requested to step aside after the expiry of his employment contract.

Their new season will resume in early July with the official pre-season training drills.
