BUSINESSMAN Faud Anwar Ali is the new president of the Navua Football Association.

Ali was appointed to the position on Wednesday night during the NFA annual general meeting.

Also, seven other new office bearers were elected to the NFA during the meeting which was attended by Fiji Football Association chief executive Bob Kumar, six club representatives, and some observers.

The only person who retained his spot was secretary Ashwin Chand.

He said the new officials had set goals to help the district remain and excel in the Super Premier division.

"Actually some plans have already started while some we are going to work on in the near future," Chand said.

"The main priority for the association is the players and we would like to meet their needs for their efforts for the district soccer side," he said.

He said one thing the association was working on was cutting down on unnecessary expenses.

"Last year there was a lot of unnecessary expenses and we want to cut down on that so that we can use the money we save on the players.

"We also want to give the players weekly allowances and that would be possible if we do cut down our unnecessary expenses," Chand said.

This weekend Navua will be in Vanua Levu to face Savusavu and Labasa.

Navua FA - President: Faud Ali, Vice Presidents: Eddie Toy, Jainendra Sharma, Ratu Iferemi Buaserau, Ramendra Singh, Vignesh Naidu; Secretary: Ashwin Chand, Asst. Secretary: Param Singh; Treasurer: Bimal Prasad.
