Blues deputy chief steps down

LAUTOKA Football Association senior vice-president Abdul Khaiyum Rafiq has resigned from his position.

The Design Engineering Fiji Limited managing director cited personal commitments.

His resignation follows Shalendra Prasad's resignation as president last week.

Prasad was Lautoka's longest serving president.

Meanwhile, three former Lautoka Football Association executives are keen to take up the vacant positions within the Blues hierarchy.

Raben Bhan Singh, Satendra Naidu and Krishna Chandra, who held the Lautoka Football Association vice-president's position in 2009, are eager to return.

There are vacant positions for the president and three vice-presidents which will be contested for in the ordinary congress next month.

Lautoka Football Association secretary Reginald Gounder said under the statute the senior vice-president qualified to be the acting president until the elections.

Gounder said people wishing to take up the vacant positions needed to follow the proper procedures.

"The nominations for the vacant positions will be advertised," he said.

"There seems to be a lot of interest. But we need capable people to lead Lautoka soccer."

Sudesh Singh remains the lone elected vice-president. Sanjay Prasad, who is running the affairs of the team, was appointed as interim vice-president last month. His position will be officially endorsed at the ordinary congress.

The Blues will resume training for the National Football League today. Lautoka will play Nadroga in the opening round next week.
