Arua Hill signs Robert Eseru from UPDF. The long-limbed forward has signed a two-year deal and will add attacking firepower to Livingstone C. Mbabazi squad of 2021/22 Uganda Premier League season.
Robert Eseru first played for Future Stars FC from 2013-2016 and Light SS FC from 2016-2017 before he crossed to Ndejje University (2017-2019) and later UPDF FC (2019-2021). He spent two seasons with the Army side after helping them back to the Uganda Premier League (UPL).
Prior to UPDF move, the forward played a part in promoting Ndejje University team to the UPL. His glittering spell with Ndejje University mirrors in his personal achievements after scoring nine goals and assisting seven times in 18 games.
The forward was a key player for UPDF FC in 2020/21 netting five goals in the league and bundling two man of the match awards against Premier League SC Villa and now relegated MYDA.
He left the army side with eight goals and 15 assists in 30 games attached to his name. He joined Arua Hill SC after signing two years contract in September 2021.
Eseru is a versatile and well-rounded attacker, from a tactical standpoint, he is capable of playing anywhere along the front line, due to his ability to both create and score goals for his team, although he is most often deployed as a striker, due to his composure and eye for goal.
Eseru is good in the air, quick, tall standing 6ft 2in, strong and agile, he plays well with his back to goal and crows some of the best finishing, vision, passing and ball control around.
He has also functioned in a more creative playmaking role at times, as a supporting forward or even as a number 10, which allows him to drop into midfield to pick up the ball, where he can utilize his technical ability, vision, passing, and movement to create space and provide assists for teammates.
