THE Vodafone Fiji under-20 reps will bolster Suva's campaign in the Vodafone Fiji FACT which starts on Friday at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori.

Suva, which is grouped with Nadi, Lautoka and Navua, will take on the Sugar City side in its opening match at 5.30pm.

The South Seas Logistics-sponsored Suva named Fiji U20 skipper Jale Dreloa and reps Nickel Chand, Kolinio Sivoki and Antonio Tuivuna in the 22-member squad. Coach Gurjit Singh said the youngsters would play a major part in the team's campaign at the opening tournament of the season.

"We have a good mix of young and experienced players in the team. I have six players who are U20s," Singh said.

"Koli (Sivoki) and Jale have been playing in the team since last year and they are regulars and Nickel has been coming in as a substitute. They have the experience to play in the top level."

Singh also confirmed Joseph Elder had been dropped from the squad because of indiscipline.

"I'm very strict when it comes to discipline. He failed to adhere to the rules and he was dropped.

"The team has been training for the past three weeks and preparing well for the opening match against Lautoka."
