Ugandan international Khalid Aucho has completed the move to South African Premier Soccer League (PSL) side Baroka FC and has been handed a three year deal, after ending his stay at the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) champions Gor Mahia at the start of the second leg of the 2016 KPL season.
The midfielder, who spent two years with the Kenyan giants had trial stints in Scotland and was also rumored to be on his way to Bidvest Wits but after failing to make it in the UK, he is back on the continent with Baroka.

“Thank God, my new home is Baroka FC, South Africa. Thanks to the coaches that have brought me up. Thanks to all the teams I have gone through; Jinja, Simba FC, Tusker and Gor Mahia. Special thanks to Gor Mahia FC, my teammates, coaches, the management and all the fans.
“Thanks to Uganda Cranes, thanks to FUFA. Thanks to my agent Geoffrey Kayemba for all the efforts. I want to thank everyone. I am ready to take on the new challenge at Baroka FC,” he said.
