Ba women's start on a high note

BA made a flying start during the Rooster Women's Football League recording two big wins at the National Academy ground in Namosau yesterday.

The Ba team made up of under-20 players hammered Tavua 6-0 in the opening game.

Ba then trounced Nadroga 7-0 in the second fixture.

Fiji Football Association women's development manager Charlene Lockington said Ba had a strong development program from the U14 level.

Lockington said the Tavua team was made up of two adults and primary and secondary school students.

"Ba women's football holds daily training," she said.

"They have more than 40 U14 girls and after their training the senior players start their training."

The Rooster Women's Football League was launched yesterday. The launch coincided with the handing over of the Adidas equipment to the district associations which was given by FIFA as part of its women's development program.

Fiji FA president Rajesh Patel said they were happy to see women's football development happening in the country.

Patel said the aim was to make the sport formidable and claim the gold medal at next year's Pacific Games in Papua New Guinea.

"Once women's football reaches a higher level, there will be more fans witnessing the games and it should get better as years go by," he said.

"Fiji FA thanks FIFA for donating the Adidas equipment. This is to promote the women's national league. It should be a consistent competition and should not be a stop and start affair."
