Striker Fred Amaku has joined Uganda Prisons funded side Maroons Football Club.

A free agent after diligent service at Busoga United (formerly Kirinya – Jinja SS), Amaku joins the Luzira based club on a three-year deal.

He is looked at as the direct replacement for lanky forward Isaac Otto who was released alongside Herman Wasswa Nteza and Seif Batte.

Amaku is expected to beef up the Maroons’ striking line alongside Rashid Agau and Pius Obuya.
