Bevis Kristofer Kizito Mugabi (born 1 May 1995) is a professional footballer who plays as a defender for League Two club Yeovil Town.

Born in England, he represents Uganda at international level.

Club career[edit]

Mugabi was born in Harrow, London.[4] He started his career with Fulham before joining Southampton's youth system in July 2011, and signed a new two-and-a-half-year contract with the club in February 2015.[5] He signed for League Two club Yeovil Town on 5 August 2016 on a one-year contract.[6] He made his first-team debut on 9 August 2016, as a 54th-minute substitute in an EFL Cup match against Walsall.[7] Mugabi scored his first goal for Yeovil in an EFL Trophy tie against Portsmouth on 30 August 2016.[8] He signed a new two-year contract with the club in May 2017.[9]

At the end of the 2018–19 season, Mugabi was released by Yeovil following the club's relegation from the Football League.[10]

International career[edit]

Mugabi is eligible to represent England or Uganda at international level.[11]

In August 2016, Mugabi received his first call up to the Uganda national team for their friendly against Kenya and their 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualification match against Comoros,[12] but Mugabi was withdrawn from the squad by Yeovil Town with the club citing the short notice of the call-up as the reason for his withdrawal.[13] In March 2018, Mugabi received a second call up to the Uganda national team for two international friendlies.[14] Mugabi made his international debut for Uganda on 24 March 2018 in their 3–1 friendly victory over São Tomé and Príncipe.[15]
