In a bid to improve on the 2018 football season after a not so good 2017 season that saw Tusker finish at the 6th position, Tusker football Club moved quickly and completed a bulk of new signings to bolster the playing squad after 14 exiting the club.
The few departments that were found wanting prior to opening of the transfer window have now to a great extent been strengthened
The new head coach Sam Timbe finished his business earlier and has been putting his squad into shape ahead of the first league match on Saturday, 3rd February in Chemelil.
Following the departure of defender, Martin Kizza, more have been brought in; Lawrence Kasadha from KCCA FC, Bonventure Khasabuli from Muhoroni youth and Justine Omary, Sony sugar FC to reinforce the central defense whilst Eric Ambunya from Kakamega Homeboyz a left winger will play alongside David Mwangi in the position.
The midfield has also been reinforced with addition of a gem Amos Asembeka who joined from Sony sugar FC alongside Apollo Otieno from Chemelil Sugar, Peter Nzuki from Nakumatt, Robert Achema from Western Stima, John Ochieng from Kisumu All stars and Mathew Odongo from Kariobangi Sharks.
On the other end of the pitch, the Brewers attack has also been boosted with the acquisition of enterprising Timothy Otieno from Gor Mahia FC, Edwin Lavatsa from Bandari to provide pace & goals. The two link up with Khamati who has extended his contract with the club.
Vincent Omumbo has been recalled from his 6 months loan stint at Western stima while Abdul Hillary and Kevin Okoth have been loaned out to Chemelil Sugar and Western stima respectively. Furthermore, Omar Bilal who had been promoted to the senior team has been sent out on loan to Modern coast FC to get more playing time.
