Police Football Club chairman Asan Kasingye has shared his enthusiasm on the club's additional five signings, a few days after the closing of the January transfer window.
Kasingye believes that with these new signings, the team will be able to soar to greater heights in the Uganda Premier League.
The 2005 Uganda Premier League winners officially unveiled five new players at the Police Headquarters in Naguru, Kampala on Monday moments before the club out-muscled Express 2-0 at the Mutesa II Wankulukuku Stadium.
The five players were signed on during the secondary transfer window include Ivan Bukenya (Proline Football Club), goalkeeper Alfred Ginyera (Farmers FC), winger Edward Kiroywa (Farmers FC), defender Edgar Bwogi (Sharp) and striker Kenedy Kasozi (Express).
Kasingye also tasked the new recruits to observe discipline both on and off the pitch as they help the team improve performance.
"I warmly welcome you to the family of Police Football Club," he added.
"I know your skills will add something significant to the development and growth of this club. I challenge you to remain focused, work hard and disciplined at all times both on and off the field of play."
Bukenya will don shirt 12 and penned a six-month contract.
Goalkeeper Ginyera will wear jersey #30 as he also penned a two-year deal. Kiryowa from Farmers signed a one year contract and shall don shirt 10.
Bwogi is a former defender at Kitara and Express. Of late, he has been playing at Miracle. He was given short 21, also on a one year contract.
Striker Kasozi was captured on loan from Vipers and will don the shirt 9.
Following a confidence boost, 2-0 victory on the road at Express, Police are now 7th on the log with 24 points off 17 matches played so far.
