Power unveil new players ahead of new season

Five time national basketball league champions Power have unveiled their new signings ahead of the 2017 season.

The season officially tips off Friday evening with a repeat of last year’s final between City Oilers and Arnold Lando’s charges.

Sunday Okot, Sulaimani Bbale and Francis Kasinde were unveiled to the press Thursday morning.

Diego Angemi, Tyrone Martin and Julius Wapera are the other three signings but were absent at the event due to work and school commitments

Power’s Micheal Kojjo on the line

“As a club we are hoping for a good season ahead and the additions made can only make us a better team,” Power head coach Arnold Lando revealed to the press.

The team has also added Chris Kyebambe to the coaching staff.The former Miracle player joins Power after leaving KIU Titans last season.

Power have made two finals in the last three seasons but have still failed to add onto their fifth title which they won in 2011.

The new cast of players joins the established brigade that is led by team captain Joseph Ikong, veteran Isaac Afidra, Michael Makiadi and Paul Odong.

Bbale and Kasinde will give Power more size inside the paint with Michael Kojjo blowing hot and cold in the previous seasons.
