Lautoka Football new inclusion Afraz Ali has high hopes joining the Blues this season.
The 22-year-old had a good outing with Nadi last year helping the team reach the Fiji FACT final and the national league decider.
Donning the Blue jersey this season, the midfielder hopes to inspire the Tagi Vonolagi coached side to claim the national league title after a lapse of two years.
“To win the title this year, they’ve made a good squad and that’s why I’m here to win. A win against Navua will definitely set the pace for us to win the title.”
