FORMER Blues boss Bobby Williamson has been named as the new Uganda manager.
The 47-year-old, who was in charge of Chester between May 2007 and March of this year, has signed a two-year deal with the Cranes.
Williamson was unveiled by the Federation of Ugandan Football Associations (Fufa) at a news conference yesterday.
The Scotsman aims to guide his new side, ranked 96th in the world by Fifa, to the World Cup 2010 in South Africa.
Williamson’s first match in charge is a crucial qualifying tie away to Niger next week.
The former Plymouth, Kilmarnock and Hibernian boss replaces Csaba Laszlo, who left to take over Hearts in the Scottish Premier League, and will be assisted by two Ugandan coaches, Sam Timbe and veteran David Otti.
