Fiji FA probes soccer claims

THE Fiji Football Association's investigating committee will submit its report on allegations against the Lautoka Football Association to its board of control next week.

The investigating committee met delegates from the clubs on Tuesday to hear their grievances.

The Fiji FA set up the committee after receiving complaints from clubs — Tuivilavila and Rifle Range — last year.

Fiji FA vice-president Tarunesh Reddy was appointed chairman of the committee with former Nadi president Jiten Kumar and Darell Raj Charan as the other members.

Kumar did not attend Tuesday's meeting because of personal commitments.

Discussions were held on the 2013 league competition which was hastily completed to meet the deadline for nominations for the National Club Championship.

It was heard that some prizemoney for the 2012 and 2013 local league competition were not paid out.

Former Lautoka president Shalendra Prasad clarified that the clubs involved owed money to the association.

He also said the release of some Lautoka Blues Club players were held because they had valid contracts.

According to Reddy, the parent body has requested all associations to kick-start the league early to avoid the last-minute rush.

He said the deadline for registration for the Lautoka league is March 31.

"We will compile our report and hand it to the Fiji FA by next week," Reddy said.

"It will be presented at the next board meeting where a decision will be made. The Fiji FA will call for the ordinary congress thereafter."

Lautoka executives Sudesh Singh, Izaz Ali, Reginald Gounder, Nitin Vikash and Faiaaz Ali, who were relieved of their positions by the parent body, also attended the meeting.

Prasad urged the clubs to register for the league.

He said efforts must be made to stop the exodus of players from the district with the transfer window closing on Sunday.
