THE Fiji Football Association has announced two new appointments.

Charlene Lockington is the women's development manager and women's coach.

She takes over from Usenio Logaivou who will be leaving for greener pastures in the US soon.

Fiji under-20 coach Ravinesh Kumar is the new acting technical director. Fiji FA president Rajesh Patel said they would be creating development centres for women's football covering the country.

"There are women coaches who are being certified undergoing the licence courses," Patel said.

"Lockington will be given the chance to become a B licence coach. Once we have the qualified coaches then we can have the quality of players that we expect.

"The development centres will be the key areas and it will not only be in the town areas. It will be at schools. We are looking at Rakiraki, Vatukoula, Tavua. For the boys we have identified Toko Primary in Tavua and Tuvu Primary in Nadroga.

"Saiyad Ali has gone to the North and is identifying the development centres there. We want to make sure that development happens."

The Pacific Games in Papua New Guinea next year is likely to serve as the women's football qualifiers for the Rio Olympics in 2016.

Patel said the training squad had been selected.

"The Rooster women's league will give them the game time that they require," he added.
