Fiji FA orders Lautoka to start league competition

THE Fiji Football Association has directed the Lautoka Football Association to start its local league competition.

This was relayed to the club delegates by Fiji FA vice president Tarunesh Reddy at a meeting at the Churchill Park canteen on Thursday.

According to Reddy, the idea was to start the competition early and not drag it to the end of the year.

Lautoka Football Association interim administrator Sanjay Prasad said all clubs should be registered by March 31.

Prasad said the registration fee had been reduced from $300 to $200.

"The dates for the kick off will be decided later," he said.

Meanwhile investigations into the affairs of the Lautoka Football Association are expected to be completed soon.

The three-member investigation team headed by Reddy will meet all club delegates next Tuesday to discuss the issue.

Reddy said they wanted to sort out the matter as quickly as possible.

Rifle Range and Tuivilavila wrote to the parent body last year highlighting their concerns.

Former Lautoka rep Freddy Work said this matter should have been resolved internally without interference from Fiji FA.

Work said the ordinary congress must be called immediately to elect the office bearers.

Shalendra Prasad who resigned as Lautoka president in January said he was ready to front the investigation committee to answer to the allegations made by the disgruntled clubs.
