Former Suva striker joins Navua

FORMER Suva soccer star Nathan Shivam has joined the Navua Football Association in the new transfer window.

The talented midfielder, who netted an absolute screamer to help the Whites bury Ba on their home turf in the 2012 Fiji FACT final, is originally from Navua.

A schoolteacher by profession, Shivam joins his dad's family team Sangam FC.

"Nathan will start with club games but should be ready to don the red jersey by the second round of the NFL," said Navua FA interim president Eddie Fong Toy.

"He is a Navua boy at heart and we welcome him home. As a player and school team coach, he brings with him a wealth of experience.

"A big thank you to Govind Sami and Sangam FC for securing his release. The club, like Mahendra Prasad's FNU, has been really helpful to the association."

Sangam FC yesterday gave $100 towards Navua's trip to Labasa next week.

Former district rep Ramesh Prasad, who is also known as Babu, has been appointed manager with Salesh Autar as his assistant.

Vice-president Manoj Kumar steps in as interim coach after Kameli Kilawaca stepped down because of work commitment in Nadi.

Two more former Navua reps are slated to join the district soon.

Meanwhile, Navua's game against Lautoka this weekend has been postponed because of the bad weather.
