U19 reps boost Lautoka netball

Maciu Malo
Thursday, August 21, 2014

LAUTOKA netball will be bolstered with the inclusion of some of Fiji secondary school under-19 champion Natabua High School players in the much anticipated IDC netball competition at the Lautoka multi-purpose courts this weekend.

Lautoka netball secretary Kini Drasuna said the district would feature four teams for the two-day tournaments.

She said the tournament would be a good exposure for their players especially their U21 netters.

"Some of the players in the Natabua and Jasper Schools netball teams usually play in our club games and we will certainly use them at the IDC," said Drasuna.

"Our target is to expose our development and secondary school players.

"We have a good mix in all the teams and we are confident of a good outing."

Drasuna said the tournament would be special for all the players because they would play in front of their home fans. The district won the B division and U21 title last year in Suva and the aim was to improve its performance this year.

"We expect tough games during the meet and the netters are aware of it. We have faith in the girls and I am confident of a good outing during the two days of competition."

Drasuna said training was in full force over the past two days.

The competition begins tomorrow.
