Lautoka out to end drought

Maciu Malo
Wednesday, April 16, 2014

GENERAL Machinery Lautoka is gunning for the men's title in this weekend's Easter Volleyball tournament.

The side hasn't won a major title in Suva for about four decades and is aiming to end the drought this weekend.

Team president Timoci Gukisuva said the players aimed to make amends for their quarter-final exit at the recent Vanua Challenge in Suva.

He said the side was inspired by their women's team that won their first-ever national volleyball title at the Vanua meet.

Gukisuva said players had sacrificed their time at training over the past three weeks with a mission to win the title.

"The players were disappointed after our quarter-final exit at the Vanua Challenge and our mission this weekend is to make amends for that loss," he said.

"Our players are capable of matching giants such as Suva, Raiwai, Raiwaqa and Nakasi.

"We have set our target and that is to win the tournament."

The competition kicks off in Suva on Friday.
