If you thought striker Geoffrey Seerunkuma didn’t have the legs to run and touch to make the back of the goal nets shake, you will have to think again.

The 2016/2017 Uganda Premier League’s most valuable player and top scorer with 21 goals is back in local football after a two-year absence.

In Uganda, Sserunkuma last featured for KCCA FC before leaving for Buildcon FC for the 2017/2018 season before joining Napsters FC.

He was one of the two scorers as Wakiso Giants defeated Tooro United 2-1 in a classification match of the 2019 Pilsner Super 8 played on Tuesday at Wakissha Resource Centre.

Sserunkuma was fouled in the area just after 16 minutes, he collected himself to give his new side the league, a mark indicated his return but as a Purple Shark this time round.

“It’s good to be back, especially with a goal on my debut for Wakiso Giants,” Sserunkuma told

“I can still score the goals because that’s my job and our team has so many midfielders who create the chances,” he added.

Talking of chances, Sserunkuma would have registered a hat trick on a good day, he hit the post as early as the second minute in a game Tooro United were at the receiving end on from the sent.

Davis Ssali drew Wasswa Bossa’s side level in the 45th minute before Karim Ndugwa came off the bench to score the winner for Kefa Kisala’s side.
