Uganda Premier League club Maroons have officially announced the signing of Isaac Otto from FUFA Big League outfit Kiboga Young FC. 

Maroons who are coached by former Uganda Cranes legend George Nsiimbe have reportedly signed the striker on a two-year contract with immediate effect.

They beat fellow top tier Mbarara City Football Club which had earlier expressed their keen interest in signing the player.

Otto, a former player at Nkumba University in the famous University Football League and Singo Ssaza in the Airtel Masaza Cup, has been one of Kiboga Young’s trusted forwards and had four goals to his name by the close of business for the first half of the 2018/19 season.

He joins other forwards as Rashid Agau and Seif Batte in the quest for the much-needed points in the second round of the Uganda Premier League.

Meanwhile, the club has released three senior players Dan Wagaluka, Herman Wasswa Nteza and defender Abbey Samson Mutyaba.

Maroons will be anticipating a great second round having collected an average of 15 points from the 15 games played as they battle to avoid relegation.
