Labasa recalls former coach

BAL Sanju Reddy has been re-appointed the Labasa football coach.

The former national assistant coach joined the team on Monday and will be assisted by skipper Pita Bolaitoga.

Bolaitoga, who will be leaving the team in March to rejoin the Papua New Guinea-based Hekari United club, has been mentoring the team since late last year.

Labasa Football Association media liaison officer Edwin Chand said Reddy's inclusion would boost the team.

The primary schoolteacher, who started his coaching career with the Nadogo primary school side, had coached the Babasiga Lions for couple of seasons since 2009.

Reddy will reunite with his former player, goalkeeper Vereti Dickson, whom he coached at Dogotuki Primary School.

"Since Pita is leaving the team in March, we had to bring in someone to guide the team. Pita is acting as the assistant coach of the side," Chand said.

Chand said Reddy's past experience with the team would be essential for the side.

Meanwhile Labasa will play Lautoka in the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League match at Churchill Park this Saturday.
