THE Nadroga Football Association is delighted with the increase in the number of clubs joining their local league competition.
The local league which totally flopped in their district last year will kick off round one competition tomorrow.
Association president Vijay Singh said a total of 16 clubs had registered for the league which was a surprise to him since less than 10 were part of the same competition last year.
"Last year, the local league was poorly organised and was not even completed," he said.
"But we are fortunate that clubs are coming forward to compete which is a good sign for sport in our district."
He has advised all clubs and players to come to Lawaqa Park tomorrow to take part and also talk with him if possible.
"This is because we would like to work together, the clubs, their players and the NFA, to help move the sport forward in Nadroga.
"Nadroga soccer had problems in the past but if we work together we can solve problems and achieve things."
Singh said they had also introduced a new club which will be administered by veterans of the sport but had young and upcoming players in the squad.
"This side would be known as Veterans but will have young and new recruits whom we will develop for district services."
Meanwhile, he said the local league competition would be divided into pools after the first round of competition.
"Dividing the competition would make it more structured and easier to organise and it will also make competition interesting," Singh said.
