FORMER rep and coach Anand Sami will lead the Labasa football team in their campaign to win the 2018 Vodafone Fiji FACT.

Sami who coached the Babasiga Lions to their first Courts Inter-District Championship win in 1992 at Ratu Cakobau Park, Nausori where they beat Nadroga 2-0 in the final took on the lead role a month ago.

He coached the Babasiga Lions to their first Courts Inter-District Championship win in 1992 at Ratu Cakobau Park, Nausori where they beat Nadroga 2-0 in the final.

He showed his worth last year when he took up the challenge to coach newcomers Tavua side in the Courts IDC.

Meanwhile the side have been boosted with the return of their star strikers Christopher Wasasala and Ashneel Raju.

Former U-20 defenders Antonio Tuivuna and Jale Dreloa are likely to be key in defense with veteran Taniela Waqa while the experience of midfielders Edwin Sahayam, Ilisoni Logavou and Pita Bolaitoga will hope to do their best for the Northerners.

As it stands, they will be a hard side to beat and looks set to make it an exciting set of matches against Ba, Rewa and Dreketi.
