Express FC have signed Martin Opolot as one of the recruits at the club in the recently concluded transfer window.

Opolot returns to the Uganda Premier League after a stint in the Botswana Premier League.

He last featured for Prisons XI in Botswana alongside his compatriot Deus Bukenya before they became free agents.

Just like Bukenya, Opolot is a utility player who can play as a midfielder but also as a right back.
