Express Football Club welcomes the five players recruited on board. We believe it a mix of the experienced and the youth. Brian Umony for instance brings class to the club. He is a proven striker. The other players Goffin, Ocholit, Ssekyembe and Zaga are young and creative enough to beef up our current squad
