EXPRESS FC has agreed terms with three of the players who had refused to sign for the club, prior to their Super League match against SC Villa on Friday.

Goalkeeper Abel Dhaira and midfielders Kassim Kasawuli and Hamza Ssemwogerere put their signatures on licences yesterday permitting them to feature for the Red Eagles this season. They will also sign their contracts this week.

Express team manager Muhamood Kateregga confirmed the development and said the three players simply wanted details about a few issues in their terms and condition of service at the club.

“Dhaira, for example, wanted to know how a transaction like that of a company wanting to use him for adverts, would be handled,” Kateregga explained.

He also said that Kasawuli and Ssemwogerere had requested for some money because they had felt cheated when the club bought some new players expensively. They claimed they have been loyal for several years and got completely nothing.

“Their demands were genuine and it was just a matter of understanding their plight. They don’t need much and I am sure the club can meet that,” Kateregga, also a former striker at Wankulukuku, added.

It had earlier been reported that club secretary Kavuma Kabenge had declared the players unwanted. He is reported to have put them up for sale.

Meantime, Super League media and commercial rights owner GTV, together with the local football federation FUFA, have expressed appreciation at what they say is an exciting start to the league.

“We have had calls from soccer fans upcountry commending us on the good pictures and commentary on GTV on Friday. The attendance was good and both clubs exhibited a very good game,” said GTV’s general manager Daniel Kagwe.

Competition’s Committee secretary Eng. Moses Magogo, was also “excited” about the kick off.

“ Maroons and Victors for example had the players’ names on their jerseys and the referees said that controlling players with their names on their backs was the best experience,” said Magogo.

The League continued yesterday, with Ibrahim Kayongo scoring a brace, including a 90th minute strike, as Biharwe FC stunned Bunamwaya at Nakivubo. Former international Charles Namakola is their coach. Tony Odur and Yuda Mugalu scored for Bunamwaya.
