They added striker Frank Kalanda from Police FC and Tom Ikara despite having a reach goal keeping department with the likes of Saidi Keno, Emmanuel Kalyowa and John Okurut
Ronald Otti came in to join the Jinja based side after being released by Mbarara City FC whereas Emmanuel Obua and Benon Tahomera were signed from Kyetume.
Busoga United’s hot cake player Anthony Mayanja crossed roads to join BUL FC bringing in experience to the side alongside Denis Mwemezi who came on loan from Vipers SC.
The Club also spared some time to discover new young talents as they scouted Edrine Cavani Mawerere, Shafiq Kwikiriza both from JIPRA and Vicent Ziwa from Busoga United as new future prospects.
A resuffle at BUL FC saw 10 players depart the side with former SC Villa player Ambrose Kirya leading the departing players.
