2003 to present

Odur broke onto the scene in 2003 as an exciting youngster at Express FC. Together with the small Mark Mwambo, who has since quit the game, in midfield, they were the new kids on the block that came off the bench at the CECAFA club Championships that year to turn the game round. [3]
The two were the talking points at that time and very exciting and at the end of that season, they helped Express win the Kakungulu Cup. But more sticking is the wonderful late equalizer Odur scored in the 2004 Kakungulu Cup final against KCC. [3]

However, Odur's problems have been discipline. Faruuk Ssimbwa, formerly an administrator at Express between 2005 and 2007 told The Observer[Uganda news paper] that Odur was as talented as he was insubordinate. “He was the kind of player who would at times want to hold the team at ransom if he wasn’t given what he wanted.” [6]

It was one of the reasons he ended up quitting the team and joining Bunamwaya. He also had a professional trials stint in Denmark although he wasn't successful, and Tony had this to say “I need to get a shot at such an opportunity again and that’s why I’m working hard.”
