Tavua to field young side

October 5, 2017 12:08 am

The Tavua football side will field majority of young players in the Courts Inter District Championship next week.

Assistant Coach Saroj Kumar, says they are the underdogs of the tournament and are looking forward to playing to their best level against the prominent teams.

He says, they have been lucky to be assisted by national team coach Christophe Gamel for the past few days.

“The national coach was here looking at our preparations and he was very pleased with the games that Tavua played. He said that though it’s a young team they will turn heads and we cannot predict anything in the tournament since we are the underdogs.”

Tavua returns to the top level of football after five years.

The side has won the IDC title ones, back in 1995, when they beat Nadi 2 nil.

Meanwhile, IDC kicks off on next Tuesday with Dreketi playing Rewa in the opening match at 1pm at Churchill Park in Lautoka.

In the other matches on the same day, Nadi plays Tavua at 3pm, Ba takes on Labasa at 5.30pm and host Lautoka faces Suva at 7.30pm.

You can catch the live commentaries of all the matches from 1pm on RADIO FIJI TWO, with voice of soccer, Raymond Stoddart.
