Arua based topflight league club, Onduparaka FC has signed 12 new players as they prepare for the resumption of the Uganda Premier League (UPL).
The new signings include FUFA drum gold medalist with Acholi Province Moses Okot who has been playing with Bright Stars. The prolific midfielder signed a two-year deal with the club on last Thursday before Noel Nasasira signed a season-long loan to join the caterpillars from Kyetume FC on Monday.
Others include, Augustine Opoka, striker Gabriel Matata, Augustine Akoch, Nelson Opiyo, Emmanuel Odur, Emmanuel Okech, Bony Musema, Kennedy Atibuni, Jasper Okello and Jerry Jakisa.
This comes after the club made three new additions to its technical department including head coach Villai Bainomugisha, assistant head coach Abu Mubarak Wamboya and former Uganda cranes player Dan Obote as their chief scout.
Mercy Munduru, the club’s head of marketing and public relations said that the main target is to enlarge the squad to be able to sustain the pressure that will come with the competition.
She says the club has struggled due to injuries of its players, a reason they have made signings in all the departments in the football pitch.
According to Munduru, they are mindful of the ages of the players being signed at the club with most being below 25 years of age.
