Patel calls for unity

FIJI Football Association president Rajesh Patel has urged the Gujarati community to unite in a bid to organise a better annual sports championship next year.

Mr Patel made the comment after only five districts participated in the soccer tournament at Lautoka's Churchill Park.

Rewa, coached by former national rep Marika Rodu, beat defending champions Nadi 6-5 in a penalty shootout.

This was Rewa's first win in 24 years.

Rajesh expressed his disappointment at the lack of interest in the annual event.

He said sports such as table tennis, golf and snooker used to be played before and were no longer on the schedule.

Rewa goalkeeper Jais Patel won the Player of the Tournament award.

The 54-year-old was a standout for the Rewa side.
