The KAVC libero has switched to league champions Nemostars where he is expected to galvanise their defensive game.

The transfer window in any sport can be like a lottery ticket. At the end of the whole exercise, you look at the winner’s numbers and wonder what kind of rotten luck you had.
 
In the Uganda Volleyball Federation League, the biggest transfer of 2019 has got to be Emmanuel Elanyu swapping Lugogo for Kololo.
 
The KAVC libero has switched to league champions Nemostars where he is expected to galvanise their defensive game.
 
“Elanyu is here for two things; to boost our defence and reception. Those are the two key areas that have been affecting us and above all, he is a mature and experienced player,” Nemo coach Andrew Okapis said.
 
To Okapis, Elanyu’s experience playing at the top level is the missing piece in the jigsaw and he believes after this window, they are going to be stronger than ever.
 
KAVC, on the other hand, have snapped up Innocent Ayo from Ndejje. He comes in to sharpen the attack.
 
Many other players have made movements including former UCU Lady Doves Captain Faith Magole and Sport-S’ Kauther Kagoya Moving to VVC. Hannington Nsubuga’s side have recruited heavily as they seek to go back to the top of their game in the sport
 
The window has seen over 50 male players swapping teams to only 16 women so far. League champions Nkumba University have not yet recruited.
