Newly elected Labasa Football secretary Varun Anand said their preparations were on track.

“The boys have been doing intense training for  three weeks now and we are expecting a tough first game against Dreketi at 5.30pm,”Anand

“We will stick to the same team which had been playing all throughout the Vodafone Premier League season.

“There are 22 players in the side with few experienced players like Taniela Waqa, Nikhil Chand and Antonia Tuivuna.

“We will try to win the tournament this year although we are aware the competition will be tough in the pool stages against Dreketin Ba and Nadi.
