Warning for Nadro players

Maciu Malo
Sunday, February 16, 2014

THE Nadroga Football Association has issued a strong warning to Nadroga players who have joined a new organisation formed by former players.

The directive follows a report by Nadroga president Vijay Singh that some of his players have joined the rival body and failed to turn up for training.

Kumar said any player found to be illegally playing for another organisation would be suspended.

"Fiji FA only recognises Nadroga Football, therefore, any player wanting to feature in the rival body will be suspended from all levels of soccer," he said.

"We are waiting for Nadroga soccer to submit a full report about this new body before we can see what course of action to take."

"Only six players turned up for training this week as some of the boys are playing in the other association," said Singh.

"This has affected our preparation for the game against Suva this weekend

"The new body has been formed by some former Nadroga reps and it's disheartening to see that these former players are driving the upcoming players in the wrong direction."

Singh said the absence of some players at training would not stop Nadroga from fielding a team against Suva today.
