U18 squad to be named

NATIONAL under-18 hockey coach Tai Smith will name her final squad today for the Youth Olympic Oceania qualifiers which will be held in Port Vila, Vanuatu, in March.

The side resumed training at the National Hockey Centre on Monday after training along the Suva Foreshore early this month.

The centre is now under the ownership of the Fiji Sports Council.

"They have given us the turf to train on at a very economical rate and we are thankful to them for allowing us to prepare for such an important competition," she said.

Initially 29 boys and 26 girls were part of the training squad but Smith's job of selecting the final 15 has been made easier.

"I just had to drop one of my best players because he was sick and then there were some disappointments who still haven't shown up."
