Henry Kisekka is an Ugandan footballer who plays as striker for Indian club Gokulam Kerala

Career[edit]

Regarded as an important asset to Dong Nai's attacking line in 2012,[1] he recorded 11 goals, helping his team achieve promotion.[1] Not much later, he received a call up to the Uganda squad ahead of the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying rounds.[1][2]

Binh Duong F.C. canceled Henry Kisekka's contract in 2016.[3]

Quang Nam[edit]

For six rounds, he did not score a goal but by round 9 he had hit 4 goals, making him eighth top scorer of the V.League by that time. This empowered him to score five more, increasing his tally to 9 goals by the end of the season.[4]

Only scoring one goal for Quang Nam in 2015, his profligacy in front of goal forced him to return to Uganda in search for a club.[5] One of his possibilities was Dong Nai F.C.[5] to which he transferred in June 2015.

Gokulam Kerala[edit]

In February 2018, Kisekka joined I-League club Gokulam Kerala[6] as a replacement for Nigerian Odafa Okolie. He made his debut in a 1-0 away loss against NEROCA. He scored his first goal in the very next match against Mohun Bagan [7] in the 90th minute and guided his side to victory. Kisekka whipped in a powerful volley out of the blue after controlling the ball well from a throw-in.[8]

On 15 March 2018, he scored a brace against North East United in the qualifier match and helped his side to enter into the final round of the 2018 Indian Super Cup.[9]

Mohun Bagan[edit]

On 7 April 2018, Kisekka switched to fellow league club Mohun Bagan. On 4 March 2019, Kisekka release from Mohun Bagan.[10]
