AN Australia-based former Fiji rep starred for the Mounties Wanderers team in the New South Wales SUPA IGA Men's Two National Premier League against top seed Saint George on Sunday.
Alvin Singh scored a hat-trick for the Wanderers in their 4-1 upset win. With the surprise victory the Wanderers finished the competition in third spot behind runner-up Macarther Rams and champions Saint George. Singh, a former Ba player, signed up with the Wanderers this year after a stint with Papua New Guinean club Hekari United which saw him participate in the 2010 FIFA World Club Cup in Japan.
He put on a strong performance for the Wanderers in July scoring twice in the 4-0 victory against Northern Tigers upon his return from a hamstring injury. Singh will now be representing the club in the knockout competition which starts soon.
Unfortunately he is one of the senior players who has been left out of the national training squad for the upcoming international matches against Vanuatu and New Caledonia. Singh has been part of the national team since 2008 making 13 appearances.
Fiji Football Association acting president Tarunesh Reddy said they were monitoring Singh's performance.
He reiterated that the 32-member squad was not the final one.
"The technical department is following Singh's progress in Australia. I believe he has been playing well lately. The door to the national squad is open," Reddy said.
