THE Lautoka Football Association has appointed an interim president to look after its affairs.

LFA executives appointed Sudesh Singh as caretaker president until the annual general meeting next month.

Late last year, president Shalendra Prasad stepped down from his position and was followed by senior vice-president Abdul Khaiyum Rafiq two days ago

A letter written by LFA secretary Reginald Goundar says Singh is to head the association with immediate effect. "Rest assured he will be given support by the other executives," Goundar said.

"After discussions with the executives, you (Singh) have been appointed as the interim president of LFA until the next AGM sometimes in February," he said.

Meanwhile, the LFA will hold its first council meeting this Thursday at Churchill Park to discuss the endorsement of the interim president, local league registration, National Football League and annual congress.
