National U17 starts one-week camp

THE Fiji under-17 training squad will hold its first week-long camp starting today in Ba in preparation for next year's Oceania playoffs in American Samoa.

The selectors with Imdad Ali, Saiyad Ali and Juan Carlos Buzzetti were monitoring the players during the under-16 boy's division at the Inkk Mobile Battle of the Giants.

Fiji U17 coach Kamal Swamy said the selection process was still open.

Swamy said they hoped to get about 30 players for the first camp.

"Many players didn't make it to this tournament for personal reasons," he said.

"Some of the schools did not participate in the U16 competition. There were only three in Suva.

"So we will go back to Suva and also look at players in Nadi and Nadroga. We are trying to get the better players in the training squad.

"There will be trials so the opportunity is still open because we cannot select players in one week.

"Some of the districts are using young players such as Dreketi and Seaqaqa in the North. They have experience playing at the senior level so we will try and bring them in."

Fiji finished in fourth spot at the 2013 Oceania U17 playoffs in Vanuatu.

The next edition will be held from January 13-17, 2015.
