Navua soccer appoints new team

EDDIE Fong Toy has stepped up to take charge of the Navua Football Association.

The former Lautoka/Suva/Labasa rep had been serving as the vice president of the association and was given the post of interim president during a meeting on Wednesday.

This was after Faud Ali stepped down from the president's post earlier this week. A day before that Navua coach Mohammed Shafeel had resigned.

Two losses in the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League and two resignations forced the remaining members to call the meeting.

Fong Toy said he became interim president and assistant Navua coach Kameli Kilawaca was named interim coach.

"When I became interim president, former Navua coach Manoj Kumar was given the vice president's post that I had vacated," he said.

"So he is vice president, Kilawaca is interim coach and Subba Ali is interim team manager."

He said they were trying to take Navua back to its giant killer status.

"All we need is the support of the people of Navua.

"This Navua team is for the people of Navua and their support will surely motivate the team to perform better," he added.

Navua faces Ba tomorrow at Govind Park and Fong Toy said they were not making any predictions for the match.

"What I can tell you is that the boys will give their best performance on the field.

"We have former coach Manoj with us once again and Kilawaca, a former national rep, is interim coach so we expect the two to come up with something," the former rep said.

Meanwhile, he added they were trying to confirm a date for the annual general meeting so that they could have elections for the respective positions.

"It may be sometime within the next two weeks."
