Several Super League Football Clubs have embarked on a massive recruitment drive, ahead of the new league season due in August.
The recruitment drive is intended to register new players to bolster their capacity to contest for the top positions.
The Clubs comprising new entrants and old timers are not leaving chances to fate as they seek to improve their squad with more talent.
The move however seems poised to encourage poaching of players especially by the football clubs which are financially stable.
Already, Boroboro Tigers Football Club has been identified as one such club threatened by the ongoing registration.
Several players including Captain, Ogwal Engedo; goalkeeper, Francis Ongia, Francis Omara, Tari West, Isaac Ebong and Opunya Jacob are reported to be on the verge of signing contracts with bigger teams, which are promising better pay and an improved welfare.
Leo Alani, the Lira district Sports Officer, says the district has been awash with scouts from teams like the league champions, KCC, Bunamwanya, Victor, Police and Victor all seeking to enlist the services of the talented players of Boroboro FC and other local teams that have been taking part in the just ended Mini league competitions.
He says the scouts are targeting players from Boroboro Tigers FC, UPDF 5th division, Kwania SC and Youfra FC.
Boroboro's Tom Okello who has reportedly agreed terms including a one million transfer fee, a 180,000 shillings monthly salary as well as full tuition sponsorship at Ndejje University by KCC FC.
Maxwell Omara, chairman of Boroboro Tigers FC admitted that they were in negotiations with KCC over the transaction that is believed to include Okello and another striker, Gabriel Nyangkol.
Several players say they are being tempted to cross to other clubs because of poor welfare accorded by Boroboro Tigers officials.
Patrick Ogwel, FUFA representative in the area says he has been flooded by complaints from players against the mistreatment by Boroboro Tigers FC club officials.
Ogwel plans to convene a meeting with the management of Boroboro and Youfra, to address the players concerns.
