Ugandan forward Edward Kizza joins Riverhounds Soccer Club on a loan deal for the remainder of the ongoing season.

He joins Riverhounds SC from New England Revolution of MLS but the deal waits approval from USL and U.S Soccer Federation.

“Edward (Kizza) is a player who has trained with our group in the past and excelled during his time at Pitt,” Riverhounds head coach, Bob Liley said before adding.

“He is a goal scorer with good movements, instincts and finishing ability that we are excited to bring back to Pittsburg,” he added.

In 2021, the forward split time between the MLS team and New England Revolution II in the USL League one.

Kizza made 11 appearances with one (1) assist for the Revolution and scored five (5) goals in 12 games with the reserve side.

This season, he started the campaign in the USL Championship on loan with Memphis 901 FC where he managed 111 minutes across eight appearances before earning a recall by New England.

Kizza becomes the fourth former Pitt player to join Riverhounds. The others are Robby Dambrout, Arturo Ordonez and Shane Wiedt.

He will have a chance to make an instant mark as Riverhounds take on New Mexico on Saturday July 16.
