Former USL-2 MVP Ssejjemba signs with Charlotte

The Charlotte Eagles announced the signing of former Richmond Kickers' star and 2006 USL Second Division MVP Robert Ssejjemba at Eagles Headquarters in Matthews, N.C.

The 27-year-old forward from Kampala, Uganda scored 17 goals in 19 games in 2006, helping lead the Kickers to the 2006 USL-2 Championship over the Eagles in a 2-1 victory. It was a year that also drew attention from Major League Soccer as D.C. United signed Ssejjemba for the remainder of their 2006 season.

In 2007, Ssejjemba scored 6 goals in 16 games for the Kickers before having to return to Uganda for the rest of the 2007 season.

A Virginia Intermont College (NAIA) soccer standout, Ssejjemba tallied 186 points over four seasons (75 goals, 36 assists) including 57 points (24 goals, 9 assists) his senior year.

Now in Charlotte, Ssejjemba will also be doing plenty of work in the community. He will be working with Sports Outreach Institute, a partner with the Charlotte Eagles, to continue raising awareness and providing relief for the people of Northern Uganda.

"Robert is a proven goal scorer in this league," said Eagles GM Tom Engstrom. "We are also equally excited about what he brings to the team off the field with his desire to be involved in the community through coaching and his desire to fit into our international work."

The Eagles open up their 2008 USL-2 season on April 19th against Bermuda at UNC Charlotte's TransAmerica Field, before playing the remainder of their season at Charlotte Christian in South Charlotte.
