The former Sidama Coffee goalkeeper was released by Dedebit in December after two years with the Blues in which he won one Ethiopian Premier League title and won EFF cup title, won last year. Sisay was also the main man between the sticks for Dedebit’s 2013 CAF Confederations cup run as well as their short lived 2014 CAF African Champions league campaign. His exploits meant he was a regular call up for Sewnet Bishaw’s national team squads and he competed with Jemal Tassew for the number one jersey throughout Ethiopia’s 2013 AFCON and 2014 World Cup campaigns. He has 12 international caps to his name since making his debut in 2012 in an AFCON qualifier against Benin.
Sisay Bancha started the season with Dedebit, but after some high profile blunders and a reported falling out with club staff, he agreed to part ways with the club just days before 2015, leaving the way for youth product Tarik Getnet to become Dedebit’s number one. Dedebit themselves have been on the down trot, with poor results leading to the sacking of Nigussie Desta from his managerial post. Sisay Bancha, who has spent the last couple of months with family in Awassa, finally signed for Woldia Kenema this week.
