Of the squad the Red Eagles had last season, only six are still at the club. These include goalkeeper Mathias Muwanga and Tonny Kyamera, Ivan Ocholit, Saddik Ssekyembe, Disan Galiwango and Lawrence Kigonya.

The club on Wednesday announced a squad of 28 players that will be used in the 2019/20 campaign.

Some of the notable new signings are returnees Frank Kalanda and Edris Kaye who had played for Express FC before.

Ghanaian defender Emmanuel Baffoe is also part of the squad unveiled.
