Paddy Muhumuza has quite some experience having featured at Victors FC, SC Villa and Proline FC in the Super League and while the duo of Joseph Kaskende and Muhammed Kasirye were formerly at Masaka LC and CRO FC respectively.

The trio will add pace and competition in the midfield especially the holding role that was a concern for tactician Mark Twinamatsiko,”their work rate and aggressiveness is what we need in the midfield,” he said.

Kamada Ssebagala will have many options from his new teammates as he will be mainly tasked with creating goal scoring opportunities and directing the tempo of the game for the team and obviously enjoy the reunion with Paddy Muhumuza who used to partner him in the Proline midfield.
