STAR striker Samuela Drudru made a perfect debut for Namaka scoring the lone goal against defending champions DCA in the opening round of the 2014 Nadi Football Association local league yesterday.

Drudru scored the goal in the first half.

Jone Salauneune, Vereti Dickson, Benaminio Matainaqara and Ilimotama Jese featured for Namaka.

Matainaqara paired Drudru upfront.

Veteran Ratu Veresa Toma had a chance to equalise for DCA but his drive was tipped away by a diving Dickson late in the game.

Namaka coach Pranesh Amarsee said they were rusty.

Amarsee said they only trained for four days.

"This was our first game and we were a bit rusty," he said.

"But there is a long way to go in the season. We just had four days of training.

"We are working on a new formation and created a lot of chances but lacked finishing. Every team in the local league wants to win the title."

Association president Navneeda Gounder said they were still looking for a sponsor for the competition.

Gounder said they anticipate a bright season.

"After some months we have started our local league competition," he said.

"The clubs are geared up. The club officials have been co-operating with our executives and I'm hopeful that this will continue for the remainder of the competition.

"The clubs are stronger like DCA, Namaka and Downtown Blues including the district reps. We do not have a sponsor yet.

"But even if we don't find a sponsor, definitely the association will pay out the prizemoney." We created a lot of chances but lacked finishing.
