SC Villa raided the mid-season transfer market in style by luring striker Moses Aduni from Express yesterday. Aduni who joined Express as a student player in 2006 picked transfer forms at FUFA House shortly before closure of the day’s business at 5.00pm.

Aduni and Police defender Simeon Masaba had been sighted in the company of Villa officials Tamale Kapera, William Nkemba, Chris Mubiru and Tusha Ruparelia at Club Obligato on Old Port Bell road hours earlier.

The result of the Obbligato meeting was confirmed by FUFA administrative secretary Aisha Nalule, who handed Aduni the forms. Masaba had however not yet picked transfer forms by press time yesterday.

Villa’s long serving secretary Edward Luyimbazi was excited about the imminent acquisition of Aduni. “I think if well handled Aduni can do a good job. We want goals. We have got him, we are tired of crying,” Luyimbazi remarked.

+ GTV has pledged to help Super League soccer clubs improve their home grounds to standards that suit broadcast by the pay television.

GTV country director Neil McKenzie told club officials at FUFA headquarters at Mengo yesterday that helping clubs improve their own grounds cut costs on hiring stadiums while they decongest other venues.

KCC, Bunamwaya, Victors, Simba and Maji have Nakivubo as their home ground while Police, URA and Villa are at Namboole.

Victors and Simba have proposed to move to Kakindu stadium in Jinja and Bombo Army Barracks respectively for the second round of the league.

“Namboole costs a fortune (for both GTV and Club). We can help you develop your grounds to attract sponsors,” McKenzie said while reviewing the first round. He cautioned clubs against arriving late for televised games.

In an earlier meeting, GTV president Julian McIntyre handed over to his FUFA counterpart Lawrence Mulindwa a cheque worth sh107m as their contribution to clubs. All clubs have got sh17m each for the last two quarters.

“We are going to do more and make the Super League one of the most successful in Sub-Saharan Africa,” McIntyre promised. KCC and Boroboro did not attend both meetings.

The FUFA competitions committee promised a more consistent fixture in round two.
