GENERAL Machinery Lautoka women's volleyball team has been boosted with the inclusion of former national volleyball reps and Vanuabalavu, Lau, sisters Claire and Ilisapeci Delai.

The former Kinoya volleyball stars have indicated their availability to feature for the Sugar City team during the Vanua Challenge to be in Suva held on March 21.

Team official Timoci Gukisuva said the inclusion of the sisters would boost the morale of the Lautoka players against the best teams in Suva.

He said the duo would join the team training from next week.

"The inclusion of Claire and Ilisapeci will add power to our team," said Gukisuva.

"Their experience and class will be vital for our team's campaign in Suva.

"They will be joined by upcoming players who have been impressive during the weekly competition."

Gukisuva said another notable inclusion to the Sugar City girls' campaign was former national rep Katarina Cakaunitabua.

He said the services of these former national reps would give his new players the confidence against big teams such as Raiwai and Suva.

Gukisuva said players had been training hard for the past three weeks and he was confident his team would reach the Vanua Challenge semi-final stages.

"We anticipate tough competition at the Vanua challenge but I am optimistic the girls will deliver the goods," he said.

"We have failed to reach the elimination stages in past years and our aim this year is to reach the semi-final in Suva."

Lautoka will field three women's team while the men will be fielding two teams for the Vanua challenge.

The women's number one team is being drawn in a tough pool against Suva giants Vatuwaqa, Raiwai and West's dark horse Ba in Pool 1.
