BA'S Liberian recruits Fayah Camara and Clarence Clarke have vowed to lift the champion district to another level during Oceania Football Federation's 2013 Champions League which starts next month.

The duo arrived in the country yesterday seemingly confident of taking the Men in Black to newer heights.

Camara, who previously represented the Loyola Meralco Sparks FC in the Philippines, said he had been in contact with the Ba Football Association since 2010.

The 24-year-old said he was to have joined Ba last July but could not because of his contract with the Filipino club.

The striker said he was glad to take up the opportunity to represent Ba.

"I found about Ba FC in 2010 and was in contact with BFA secretary Iliaz Khan," Camara said.

"I was supposed to come to Fiji in July last year but still had a contract with my club in the Philippines. But we are now here."

"The mission is to take Ba to another level. Ba will be playing in the OFC Champions League."

"I know that all the teams in Fiji want to play in the high level competition. So we want to take Ba to the FIFA World Club Cup."

Loyola Meralco Sparks FC features in the first division of the United Football League in the Philippines.

Meanwhile, Clarke who plys his trade in Liberia, said he found about Ba through Camara.

"I have read a lot about Ba on the internet," the 20-year-old defender said.

"I'm looking forward to playing for Ba which is rated as a champion team."

Clarke previously represented Monrovia FC in Liberia. The side is on top in the Liberian premier division.

Ba will face Papua New Guinea's Hekari United in the opening OFC Champions League fixture in Port Moresby on March 30.

The Liberian players are eligible to represent Ba in the domestic competition.
