THE electrifying Nasekula Bluez netball team is aiming to produce some fine professional players to showcase their talents at upcoming netball competitions in the North this year.

The team from the chiefly village of Nasekula defended their title for the past six years in the Macuata netball knockout tournament.

Team president Loata Niumataiwalu said they were delighted to have held on to the trophy for the past six years.

"The trophy has returned to the village and we are excited about the team's performance," she said.

"The team has toiled and worked hard to retain the trophy. They have always committed themselves in this sport and we are really proud of them.

"One of the committee's aim is to focus more on the young blood. The committee has implemented a lot of new initiatives to upgrade the skills of these players."

Niumataiwalu thanked the veterans, sponsors and the villagers for their support.

"We get out and do things beyond just showing up and playing netball because we want to make our community, our village and our sponsors proud. We work hard at making the team work hard and do the right thing."

The team also won the Macuata Methodist Division Netball competition on Thursday.
