Ugandan defender extends stay at English club

Uganda defender Bevis Mugabi has extended his contract with English league two side Yeovil Town Football Club for two more seasons.

The 21-year old joined the Huish Park side in August last year, impressed in the junior team and earned instant promotion.

He went on to feature 39 times scoring twice and helped the club to survive relegation at the end of the season.

Bevis was excited after signing the deal and thanked the club manager Darren Way and his assistant Terry Skiverton for their role in settling him at the team.

- I’m very delighted to sign my new deal. I can’t wait to join up with the boys in pre-season and crack on next year. The gaffer was a massive influence and Terry was as well. I worked a lot with Terry last season and improved a lot so I’m looking forward to working with both of them again, he told club media.

The youngster, who is eligible to represent either England or Uganda at international level, received his maiden call up to the Cranes last year ahead of Comoros build up but failed to honor with the club citing short notice.

He has previously played for Fulham and Southampton academy sides.
