Kirinya/Jinja SS club chief executive Mugabi Samuel has confirmed that they have parted ways with coach Mark Twinamasiko.

His assistant Abbey Kikomeko takes charge for now, the club says.

A statement by the club read:

"We have today parted ways with our head coach, Mark Twinamatsiko. The assistant coach, Abbey Bogere Kikomeko, a CAF C holder will handle the team until the end of the season.

All at Jinja S.S thank Mark for his immense contribution since joining us as a coach for the period of time we have been together and both of us (Mark) and we (the board) have agreed results have not been good and will always remain a much loved, respected and significant figure at Jinja SS."

Twinamasiko was previously sacked by The Saints FC after a run of poor results. This was after marshaling the club to top-flight football - the Azam Premier League.

The 27-year-old started his coaching career at Mukono-based Regional side Free Stars before his stint at The Saints.

Things just didn't work out this time. He was voted best coach in the FUFA Big League last season and nominated among the best coaches of the year.

At Kirinya/Jinja SS, he won six games, drew three and lost three in the 12 matches in all competitions he was in charge. His last game was with Entebbe Young FC in the Uganda Cup were he lost 1-0.

On his part, Twinamasiko maintains he was not sacked, but that he resigned because of the club's transfer policy.

"They did not want to sign any player, even the one at sh200,000," he says.
