The Navosa Un­der-14 team is hop­ing to have a bet­ter run this year in the Voda­fone Fiji Pri­mary Schools In­ter-District Cham­pi­onship (IDC) and make it past the pool stages.

Last year, the team failed to reach the knock­out stages but coach Roneel Chand said they are will­ing to work ex­tra hard. “This year will be tougher com­pared to last year but we’re up to the chal­lenge,” Chand said.

“We did not do that well last year, we didn’t sur­vive the pool rounds which was a bit dis­ap­point­ing. “But with the team we have now I am hop­ing we can make it to the knock­out stages. “The IDC pro­vides the ex­po­sure and the drive for the play­ers to achieve some­thing. “You can see when th­ese boys walk on the field, they push them­selves and never give up. Though the team only had a week to camp to­gether be­fore the tour­na­ment, Chand said it was not easy pre­par­ing the team. “One of the ma­jor chal­lenges we faced was try­ing to get the team to­gether be­cause all my play­ers come from the district of Na­mataku. “But we even­tu­ally made it work be­cause of the ap­proval from the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion to camp at the school.” Edited by Osea Bola
