Bandari  forward William Wadri has urged the club management to beef up the squad ahead of CAF Confederation Cup assignments next tern if they are to make an impression in Africa.

The dockers earned the nod to feature in Africa’s second tier club competition after crashing holders Kariobangi Sharks 3-1 at the weekend.

In an interview with Citizen Digital, the Ugandan who joined the dockers at the start of last season from Ugandan side Maroons, was happy for the win saying his dream  of clinching the title has finally been fulfilled.

“I am very happy for the win. I was hoping we could win the Kenyan Premier League but Gor went with it. Clinching FKF Shield was a good thing which I dreamt of,” he explained.

“We have now qualified for the Caf Confederations Cup, and I understand it features tough teams like Ghana’s Asante Kotoko and the rest. For us to perform better I think the head coach (Bernard Mwalala) and club leadership in general should make few signings.”

“We will be playing in the League as well as CAF tournament and thus we need to have depth in our team. If we could sign good strikers and defenders I believe we can make a big step including winning KPL next season,” stated Wadri who scored

The Cup heroics earned Bandari Sh2 million in prize money and a ticket to the CAF Confederation Cup, securing their return to continental football for the first time in four years.

Wadri, 24, has also turned out for Proline, Kampala City Council, Vipers and Police – all in the Ugandan league.

In the 2016/2017season, he moved to Maroon FC, also of Uganda.
