A League of pride

THE League FC soccer side will be relying on Navua district reps in their team to lead by example in the second round of competition of the National Club Championship in Ba from tomorrow.

The side has the services of current reps Inoke O'Conner, Sheik Moshin, Inia Boko and Seveci Rokotakala and former district rep Siga Ali.

In the first round of competition last weekend, the Saiyad Ali-coached side won their first match 8-0 against Waste Recyclers and then drew with Shore Blues 1-all.

Club secretary Faud Ali said this was the first time they had quailed past the pool stages and wanted to leave a mark.

He said they were looking forward to the second round of the Kriz Signs-sponsored tournament and the players were eager to take the field.

"We are looking forward to making a good start in round 2 of the competition on Friday (tomorrow)," Ali said.

"We performed well in the first round and after winning our first game by a big margin, we rested our key players and that is why we drew the second game," he said.

"But now in the knockout stages every goal will count so we want to leave a mark in the competition."

Ali said the players have been reminded to give a collective effort and help the side advance to the final. "Teamwork will be very important and we have reminded the players not to play individually but play as a team.

"We all have a common goal and that is to help League FC win the NCC.

"And we would like to thank the Vashist Muni Memorial Primary School for giving us their facilities to train," he said. The side departs for Ba tomorrow morning and will play their first game against Shore Blues at 7.30pm at Govind Park.
