Nasser Lwamunda has a burning desire to keep in shape and show that he is ready to make a first-team start for Proline Football Club this season.
The 21-year-old joyful goal keeper has been Saidi Keni’s number two since joining as a trainee from SC Vipers 2015; and has built a reputation among his teammates as an exciting talent with the ability to take over in goal.
His only senior appearance to date in Azam Uganda Premier League season 2016/2017 came when he came on as a second half substitute to replace first choice goal keeper, Saidi Keni who had been given matching orders after receiving a second yellow card in Proline Football Club’s last league game against Onduparaka FC at the BetWay Green Light Stadium in Arua on Tuesday, 1st, November, 2016.
After tasting action in the top flight league for the first time in his career, Lwamunda had this to tell. He spoke to Prolinefc.com:
‘I'm absolutely over the moon; it was a dream come true and I am hopefully to get a string of games this season.’
‘Saidi is terrific and I still have a lot to learn from him but besides that, I'm working hard to give myself and him a great challenge for the better in the team.’
‘The main thing for me is not the competition for goal but to work hard in training, remain positive and do well in the games once given the opportunity.’
‘Even if I played very few minutes on my debut in the Azam Uganda Premier League against Onduparaka FC, it was a massive boost for my career because now I know I can and will always be ready to take the opportunities and play hard to shine through.’
‘True, it was a tough test for me because I came on when its one all with 8 minutes to play and a tough game for the team too because we were away before a vibrant crowd - but we did well and am happy that I was part of that and hope for the best to come.’
