Timothy Musinguzi is the only player to have featured in every season Tooro United has played in Uganda premier league.
Tooro United have been dealt a blow even before they start their quest to return to Uganda premier league with their longest serving player and captain Timothy Musinguzi confirming that he will not renew his contract with Soccer Jaguars next season.
While talking to Sokafrika.com staff writer, Timothy said
“Its been a pleasure to pull on the Soana /Tooro United jersey and Captain them for many years ,Big thanks go to Mr Smart Obed and to Tooro United’s incredible fans that have been with us throughout our journey from when were promoted up to now “
Timothy also appreciated the role played by players and all the coaches that have been with him at Tooro .
“I wish to thank all the players that have played with me and all the coaches and staff that I have worked with. Thank you for memories that will stay with me forever ”
He added on
“As for now I can painfully confirm that I will not re-sign for Soccer Jaguars as you all know my contract is expiring at the end this month “
The 34 year old was signed in 2012 by Soana Fc from Mbarara United and he was part of Coach Richard Makumbi’s team that beat Koboko fc 3-0 at Mehta Stadium in 2013 to seal the last birth of Uganda’s top flight league .
As a hard working and committed Captain , Timothy has seen Tooro United finish 4th in 2018-2019 season and he remains the only player to feature for club in all seasons that Tooro United has played in Uganda Premier league.

The club had turbulent times last season after rebranding the team from Soana to Tooro United ,they lost their head coach Waswa Bbosa who resigned in October citing unsupportive working conditions and he was replaced by his assistant Eric Ndifuna who also got fired after few weeks .
In January they hired Muhammad Kisseka to help them avoid a slip down into Big league but the league was suspended and eventually cancelled due to pandemic Covid19 and Tooro United ended up being named among the clubs that were relegated .
Last season Timothy featured in the first round of the season but unfortunately injuries hampered his chances of playing in the second round .
A clutch of top flight and Big league clubs have already shown interest in signing the hard working experienced defender.
