Clubs block move

THE Lautoka Football Association (LFA) club delegates have blocked a move to kick off the 2014 local league competition next month.

A meeting of the delegates was held at Churchill Park on Wednesday to plan out the new season.

Interim LFA administrator Sanjay Prasad advised the delegates that a major sponsor for the league had been secured.

Sanjay said the total sponsorship amount was more than $20,000.

He said the plan was to start the competition after the new transfer window next month.

However, the proposal was knocked back by the delegates who expressed concern at the recent investigation into the affairs of the association by the parent body.

Former Lautoka rep Freddy Work moved for the ordinary congress to be held immediately to elect new office bearers.

He stated the league competition should start after the elections.

His sentiments were supported by the other delegates; 11 of the total 27 clubs were represented at the meeting.

LFA president Shalendra Prasad and vice president Abdul Khaiyum Rafiq resigned from their positions earlier this month. The Fiji Football Association then launched an investigation into the affairs of LFA after complaints by two clubs.

The Fiji FA relieved all Lautoka executives from their positions after they failed to co-operate with the investigating team and appointed Sanjay Prasad as interim administrator.

The investigation is ongoing and the ordinary congress will be held after it is completed.
