New reps adjust to Blues life

Maciu Malo
Friday, February 02, 2018

THE new Lautoka Blues soccer players have adapted to the team environment and are looking forward to form a winning combination with the rest of the boys.

The new imports — Cory Chettleburgh of New Zealand, Solomon Islands' Benjamin Totori and Vanuatu's Brian Kaltak — have been training with the team in readiness for the O'League championship.

Team president Abdul Kadar says the inclusion of the three has bolstered the team spirit.

He said the new players had a wealth of experience under their belt and would be an asset to the team.

"These three boys are combining well with their new mates at training and they really boosted the team's campaign," said Kadar.

"They are expected to add new dimension to the team."

Kadar said the trio had also filled in the vacuum left by the four players who joined other districts this year.

The four players are Christopher Wasasala (Labasa), Iliesa Lino (Labasa), Siotame Kubu (Rewa) and Josefa Dugucagi of Nadi.

"We wish our former players all the best in their respective teams this season.

"They have given their best for the Blues and we know they will do the same for their new teams.

"But as for us we will continue to work hard and we are thankful to have capable talents covering for the vacuum."

He said the side would be playing against Ba, Rewa and Suva as a build-up for the O'League which is scheduled to start at the end of this month.
