Mwatate United to sign nine players ahead of NSL season
National Super League side Mwatate United is set to sign at least nine players as they bid to bolster their squad ahead of the new season.
Speaking to Citizen Digital, club chairman David Mbaraka said after losing some key players they've embarked on a replacement process and are finalizing on the new acquisitions.
“We are waiting for the transfer window which will be active by end of this week to start registering the new players who will help us achieve our target this season,” said Mbaraka.
Mwatate lost their top scorer Ellie Saenyi who decamped to four-time Premier League champions Ulinzi Stars after scooping the golden boot award with 26 goals last season.
They have at the same time tied up their Ugandan coach Bob Odoa with a new undisclosed contract after helping the side escape relegation last season.
According to Mbaraka the Taita Taveta county based side will continue to play 'high profile' friendly matches as they wait for the second tier league resumption.
“We will just play some friendly matches so as to keep fit as we look for the tougher teams which will give us a good experience,” he explained.
They lost by a solitary goal to Bandari FC last month in a friendly match at Mbaraki.
Mwatate finished 16th last season with 37 points.
