WAYS to avoid the Navua team from falling into the premier grade will be discussed in the association's annual general meeting next month.

Under new coach Parmind Singh, the team is hoping for a better performance in the second round of the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League competition. Singh said the side had been training for the past two weeks.

"We have a squad of 22 players who are training regularly in preparation for the upcoming games," the former Solomon Islands club Koloale FC mentor said.

"I'm hoping for probably an improvement in the performance by 50 per cent. The players are showing district pride and dedication and with the new sponsors coming in, it will surely boost the performance."

Navua is facing relegation threat following poor performance in the opening rounds of the league. The association's AGM will be held on Friday, May 16 at the FNU lecture room on Queens Rd (highway) at 7pm.
