Savusavu hopes for financial assistance

THE Savusavu soccer team is hoping some good Samaritans will assist the team when they are in Viti Levu this weekend for a two-match tour.

The district always face financial problems when they are touring the main island.

Savusavu Football Association secretary Niraj Lal said they were short on funds and were still trying to make arrangements for their trip.

He said while they could pay for most of the things, there would be some areas where they would not be able to provide for the players.

"We would really appreciate if some good Samaritans would come forward to look after the team when we are in Viti Levu," Lal said.

"At the moment, we are trying to arrange accommodation for the team in Nadi for our match on Saturday.

"Also if someone could provide dinner or a meal for the boys during our stay in Nadi, it would ease the financial burden on the team."

The northerners are targeting a draw and a win from their two-match tour. They face Nadi and Tavua respectively in the Fiji Sun/GP Batteries National Football League competition.

Lal said their team had prepared well for the tour and were looking forward to giving their new players much needed exposure.
