TOP district reps will spearhead Suva’s campaign in the 2017 Sangam Inter-District Championship at Subrail Park in Labasa this weekend.
Suva’s Shahil Dave, former Labasa and Suva midfielder Dinesh Mudaliar, Nathan Kumar from Nasinu, former Suva utility Madhwan Goundar, Rakiraki’s Shekar Reddy and Daniel Das are included in the team.
Suva president Krishna Pillay said he had confidence in the side to repeat the 2015 winning performance where the side defeated Nadi 2-1 in the final.
“We got a good mixture of senior and young players and as far as I am concerned all the teams will come prepared and it will not be easy to beat them,” he said.
“We have been grouped with Middlemore, Rakiraki and Hamilton and it is not easy to go through to the pools easily.”
The side is coached by former Suva coach Allen Jesoni
“We have confidence in Allen and he has made us win twice in the past where we won in 2014 and 2015. We also have Shahil Goundar who played in the Fiji under-17 team and we are a pretty good side,” he added.
The team left for Labasa today.
