This notwithstanding, Coton Sport has made up with old players like Daouda Kamilou, Souaibou Marou, Francis Tombi Alemi and some young players from the training centre who have been trained to play professional football this season.
Added to that there is Limane Moussa and Oumarou Sali, two on loan from Avion Academy and some newly recruited players notably David Kokolome, former player of Panthère of Nde, Louis Tazoh and Leonel Ateba Mbida from As Fortuna of Yaounde and Junior Malone former player of Union Douala.
