Football administrators in Uganda are trying as much they can to improve the standards of football at their clubs with the introduction of new key posts and this can be seen at former UPL champions Express FC who have appointed Ainebyona Lewis as their sports performance analysts.
The Red Eagles, who have been one of the busiest teams in the transfer window, have added a performance analyst in Lewis who will be tasked with helping coach Wasswa Bbossa in providing analysis about the performances of the players while in training and games.
Ainebyona Lewis is a 25-year-old Ugandan, who graduated in football studies at Solent University in Southampton, England.
Express FC will require Lewis, in his new role, to capture all the actions happening on the pitch and then later tag and create video playlists of each player the following day. As the performance analyst post requires, he will also be expected to have one on one sessions with players led by the management team to present and discuss clips showing mistakes and any positives from the match.
Lewis shared his delight about joining the 2011/12 Uganda Premier league Champions in a statement that was released on the Red Eagle’s official website saying that the history and stability of the club was one of the key reasons he decided to join them.
“Being a club with history and having existed for all that long shows that there was stability and sustainability. Also getting a chance to work with the coaches who are legends in Ugandan football attracted me to learn from the very best,” Lewis said.
Ainebyona, who has played football for non-league sides in Southampton, has set his target on working hard to help his new employers win more trophies and compete on the African continent.
“My target is to grow in the department, help the team win trophies, participate in the African club competitions and also strive to be one of the leading football performance analysts in Uganda,” the 25-year-old said.
