Lions ready to roar in their new uniforms

THE Lions Volleyball Club's preparations ahead of the Suva Volleyball Association club competition have been boosted with a new set of uniforms.

The uniforms, worth $1500, were presented to the Kinoya team by a good Samaritan who wished to remain anonymous.

Previously known as the Rockets volleyball team, the side changed its name after joining the Suva association from the University of the South Pacific Islands Volleyball Association. The Lions made their debut in the Suva weekly competition last September.

Team co-ordinator Viniana Seru said they were overwhelmed by the support of the anonymous sponsor.

"We are grateful," she said.

"It was timely because this team is made up of players from Kinoya, many of whom are unemployed.

"The uniforms are a huge boost to us this season."

Seru also thanked all the club's supporters.

Youths from Yamumu Bausa, Mavota, Tivi and Tavola in Kinoya make up the core of the team.

"With the support from my husband, we usually support this team with the weekly fares and extras, but now a sponsor has come to donate to help.

"I also thank all the players' families and everyone who supports us.

"We are competing in Suva for the first time and we hope to continue our fine performance in the competition so far."

The Lions compete in the premier division at the LICI Multi-Purpose Courts every week.
