SINGIDA: Singida Fountain Gate have signed Kenyan venom striker Elvis Rupia as they aim to reinforce attacking section.
The 28-year old player was formerly parading at Kenya Police which compete in the country’s FKF Premier League.
He comes few days before the Singida based club play their CAF Confederation Cup (CAF CC) second preliminary round first leg match versus Future FC of Egypt at Azam Complex in Dar es Salaam on Sunday.
The return leg encounter is pegged in Egypt where the overall winner will book a ticket of stepping into the confederation cup group stage.
Also, the upcoming game will be a debut for the team’s newly acquired coach Ernst Middendorp who succeeded Hans Van Pluijm.
Despite featuring in the Confederation Cup for the first time, Singida Fountain Gate already declared that their target is to reach in the last 16 of the CAF CC.
To achieve that, they have no other option other than clearing Future FC hurdle.
