NADI regained supremacy in the Gujrati Inter District Championship after taking out this year's title at Prince Charles Park on Monday.

The Jetsetters defeated neighbours Lautoka 3-0 in the final to reclaim the title, which was held by Suva.

Nadi, which had the services of Nadi player Sagar Patel, walloped Rewa 4-1 while Lautoka managed to overcome Suva 5-3 via penalty kicks (fulltime 0-0) in the semi-finals to reach the final.

Fiji Gujrati Sports Association president Shashi Bhindi was impressed with the standard of football in the 57th edition of the tournament.

He said despite the postponement, the players performed well to make the three-day tournament competitive and success.

"I personally think the tournament was quite better than the previous ones despite some unforeseen circumstances," Bhindi said.

"The tournament is normally held during the Easter weekend but we postponed it and at one point decided to postpone the tournament altogether but later scheduled it for June."

However Bhindi was not happy with the ground condition, adding the poor conditions failed to bring the best out of the players.

He said they advised the Nadi Town Council well ahead of their schedules.
