Centre-back Toha Rashid has joined Arua Hill SC from Vipers SC on a two year deal after mutually agreeing with Vipers SC on termination of contract.
The South Sudan international is tied to the club from West Nile capital Arua until 2023.
Born originally in Adjumani district, with some roots from South Sudan Toha made his club football debut for Onduparaka in 2013-14 season after emerging from Mandela Comprehensive Secondary School in post primary competitions.
Rated the tallest in the Uganda Premier League with height of 6 ft 4in, Toha posses leadership skills, he is considered one of the best defenders in the history of West Nile football but he most notably made a name for himself as a goal scoring defender whilst at Onduparaka after scoring 12 league goals in three top flight seasons.
Striker cum defender, Toha is blessed with set piece skills, characterized for his ability to read play and initiate the build-up play from the first third, establishing himself as a defender with a effective game, and a fundamental-element of the Onduparaka team that earned promotion to the Uganda Premier League in 2016.
Although some folks believe Toha’s pace is questionable, they agree he compensates with his nearly sinless positional play and great reading of the game.
These technical and tactical attributes have been able to enable him make clean interceptions, and clearance besides his good defensive organizational skills and attract interest from Vipers SC which he joined in July 2019 before injuries hampered him from hitting the mark.
Announced that he has joined the Leopards, Toha Rashid unfortunately will not be able to feature until the 2021/22 season kickoff so will not be available for Arua Hill’s Big League finals against Tooro United on Friday 17 August, 2021 in Njeru.
Nonetheless Arua Hill and every Kongolo family member warmly welcomes him and wishes the commander of the air and ground, Toha who commonly uses his stamina to shake opponents off the ball and his likeable tackling ability to win balls the best in the imminent season.
