Others are Assistant captains – Left back Oyirwoth Douglas and Midfielder Ibrahim Wammanah, Winger Mugisha Rogers and Defender Samson Kasozi.

Oyirwoth will be remembered for his last gasp scorcher and a contender for goal of the season leveller against KCCA at the MTN Philip Omondi Stadium.

Midfielders Okello Donato and Adriko Rogers will also leave as free agents.

Mugisha who had an impressive season with the Army side and the National team U23 is linked with a move in Europe.

The Seven players were key for UPDF since joining and have been a mainstay at the team.
