LAUTOKA was painted blue as the Sugar City celebrated its first victory for 2017/2018 yesterday.

The mighty Blues sponsored by Design Engineering Ltd and coached by Kamal Swamy defeated Ba in a penalty shootout during the Courts Inter District Championship at Churchill Park earlier this month.

The Blues earned $22,000 and to top it off the side also received the $18,000 prize purse for being the Vodafone Premier League winner.

Lautoka Football Association president Abdul Kadar said all the prize purse earned had been shared amongst the players.

Kadar said they were really happy with fans who turned up in support to celebrate the victory.

He said the players received some gift packs.

Lautoka last won the IDC under the guidance of Dennis Singh in 2008.

The presentation of awards award was held at the Sugar Cane Growers Council complex last night.
