Paul Opus, a former player of Soroti Garage FC who joined Fixtures Star FCin Soroti told URN that they last interacted with their former managers during their last match with Namasagali FC.
 
 
"Players tried to pile pressure on the club officials to register the team in the regional league but there was no feedback, which forced them to join other clubs," he narrated. According to Opus, most of the players were ready to participate in the regional league because of the love they had for the Club.

Stephen Onyait, the chairperson FUFA North East Region, says his office has not received any official communication from Soroti Garage FC officials why they failed to participate in the Regional League. "We are waiting for official communication from Soroti Garage FC," he said.
