UGANDA: Akello to boosts Sparks

MAK Sparks' shooting guard Florence Akello is set to start training with the team tomorrow ahead of the Makerere Open tournament. Akello came back from Netherlands last week where she was doing a contract job with the United Nations.

The 2004 season top scorer left the Makerere team at the beginning of the 2005 season and has been out of the country on a contract job with the UN in Amsterdam.
On arrival last week, she told Daily Monitor that she is back to join her former side for honours this season.

"I have been out for all this long but have been doing some training to keep fit. I want to re-join my team mates so that we can get back to our winning ways," Akello said.

She led Sparks to their first league title in 2003 when they beat record champions Lady Bucks in the finals, ands then reached the finals in the following year but lost to the same team.

The MTN Open that is slated for March 24-26 at the Makerere pool and main courts will attract regional sides.
The team also has had coaching problems solved by re-appointing Sam Obol as head coach.
