Maroons players cry foul over unpaid salaries

GLADYS ZAWEDDE

Even before the country was hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, Maroons football club players were crying foul over unpaid salary arrears and sign on fees.

With the country currently under a lockdown situation, the players believe they have been let down by the club administration.

Some players who joined the Prison Warders at the start of the 2019-20 season are owed three months salaries and haven’t been able to fully receive the sign on fees since then.

“It is absurd that the administrators of the club have seemingly abandoned us. It is now three months without paying our salaries. All they claim is that the officials are not in office not considering that we are the breadwinners of our families.” A player who preferred anonymity told this website.

” They have even failed to clear our contracting dues which is frustrating because they have always been tossing us around forgetting that football is not yet over and we still have contracts with the club”

Maroons FC are fighting relegation having garnered 24 points from 25 games and sit in the drop zone.

They are coached by Charles Ayiekoh who took over from Douglas Bamweyana who was relieved of his duties following a string of unpleasant results.
