Navua sets plans for 2013

Navua Football Association is all for development in 2013.
Association president Gopal Naidu said 2012 was a successful season for them given the performance of their young players at the Courts Inter-District Championship.
“After trying out our own breed of players, we have set our target for 2013 and that is to nurture them and develop them as they are products from our local competitions,” Naidu said.
“It is about time we stopped scouting players from other districts but develop our own players as we have realised that we have talented players in our district.
“This is the focus for next season and the management and players are working together to try and make this happen in 2013.”
Naidu said the management will have a meeting next week to try and map out ideas on development not only at district level but also at club level.
Major changes are expected to help take Navua  back to its heydays.
“We are looking at recruiting our own players in the Fiji Sun/GP Batteries National League competition which starts on January 12.
“These players will be mostly the Under-21s and those that have been doing well in our local league competitions this year.
“This year alone will be for development and trying to groom the best players for Navua in years to come.”
Naidu says if all these plans fall into place, comes 2014 Navua will be one of the teams to look out for in the local competitions.
