"We are more than happy that Vincent has chosen to extend his stay at City Stars. He is one of our best performers and very key to our setup. He made the right decision,” Muyoti stated, underscoring the value that Owino brings to the squad.

Owino’s statistics speak volumes about his influence on the pitch as he has been a consistent presence in the team, featuring in all 19 games played so far this season and accumulating 1,477 minutes of playing time.

His ability to create opportunities is evident from his three assists and four key passes. Additionally, his contribution to the team’s offensive play is notable, with three goals to his credit.

Reflecting on his performance in the previous term, Owino made a significant mark in the 14 second leg games, where he recorded two assists and six key passes, alongside scoring three times and clocking 1,123 minutes on the field.
