Maroons: Akol Headlines List of Players To Renew Stay

Maroons FC Assistant Captain and custodian Emmanuel Akol is among the four players the club announced on Saturday to have extended their contracts.

Akol has signed a two-year contract extension untill 2024 which will make him one of the longest serving players at Maroons.

The goalkeeper started playing for Prison Warders since 2009, and has been with the club in three relegation intervals.

“The comfortability here, the services given to me at Maroons and the love from people here, you cannot just turn them away and that why I have stayed here upto now,” Akol told the club media.

“For the next two years, I am going to make sure that the team is not relegated again, so that whoever comes in after me finds it in good position.”

The other three players who have renewed their marriage vows are two wing backs Ceaser Olega and Godwin Kitagenda and attacking midfielder Felix Okot who will also be staying for the next two years each.

Okot had rejoined the club in January this year on a short term deal from Kyetume FC.

Okot graduated to Maroons senior team in 2015 before leaving for Kyetume in 2020, and just like his Captain Akol, his main focus is to keep the club in top-flight league.

“I am glad to be in this team, it’s a pleasure and what I can promise is that am going to work hard to put the club in the best position, so that it remains in top flight and I am ready to score goals and making assists,” Okot said.

Club’s top scorer last season, Fred Amaku, is now a free agent after the expiration of his contract in June.

He is strongly again linked to West Nile side Arua Hill FC.
