Up next were Noah and Kevin Wafula. Noah returns back on loan term from Uganda, Vipers SC and has signed a two months contract. He left Tusker in 2018 joining Kakamega Homeboyz FC before crossing the border. Kevin Wafula on the other hand signed a one and a half year deal from CMS All-stars FC which participates in the FKF national division 2 eastern zone leagues.

Eugine Asike was the final addition of the transfer window as he becomes the second brewer returning back home. Eugene was in the 2016 squad that won a double at Ruaraka together with Noah Wafula and he has won other accolades before. He rejoins the Brewers for a two months contract.

As new faces came on board, change is inevitable as some players went on loan whilst others mutually terminated their contracts with the club.

Amos Asembeka has been loaned out to Wazito FC for the remainder of the 2018/19 season while Oscar Masiga joined Vihiga bullets FC on loan.

Veteran Lloyd Wahome after a colorful sendoff joined Wazito FC , David Juma joined Ushuru FC and  Hashim Sempala who had two months remaining in his contract has joined Gor Mahia; all three players contracts were terminated  on mutual agreement.
