THE Jack's Nadi side is looking for options in its reserves to strengthen their midfield area following the exclusion of midfield general William Valentine.
Valentine has been ruled out of the Courts Inter-District Championship after sustaining a thigh injury during the training last week on Friday.
Nadi Football Association president Navneeda Goundar said they had depth in the squad to get a suitable replacement.
But he added the experience of William would be sorely missed in the IDC which starts tomorrow at Lautoka's Churchill Park.
"It is a big blow for the team."
Goundar thanked Dalip Khatri and Jack's for their support throughout this year.
Nadi will face Navua in its opening match on Thursday at 3.30pm.
