Solomon Akodi has joined Lugazi FC from Calvary FC on a 3-year employment contract running until 2026.

Solomon led his former side (Calvary FC) to the 9th position throughout their maiden FUFA Big League campaign posting 4 goals and six assists.

The 22-year old has the capability to operate as a central defender as well as a defensive midfielder though Lugazi FC understands he has been signed basically to fulfil the defensive midfield role.

He is primarily a defensive-minded player, but possesses the technical ability to operate as a deep playmaker and the athleticism to move forward and support attacks, leading him to be regarded as a complete midfielder.
