Nadi won the Vodafone Sikh Inter-district competition after 24 years.

The Gurdeep Singh –captained side edged Tavua 1-0 in final at the Korovuto College ground last Saturday.

Midfielder Neville Singh was the toast of the side scoring in the first half.

Nadi had the services of former Ba district rep Paula Buke, former Rewa striker Kevin Singh and veteran Rajvinder Singh.

Team captain Singh said; “It is a great feeling. Nadi last won the tournament in 1994 at Prince Charles Park.  After 24 years Nadi has managed to grab hold of the prestigious trophy in front of home crowd.

“The bad weather during the Easter weekend did affect our campaign but we have more time to prepare. Interestingly we had lost first game 1-0 to Nasinu and had thumped Tavua 3-0 in pool play.”

On the other hand Tavua had Ravinesh Karan Singh, skipper Sanjeet Singh, Shavneel Singh, Avneet Singh, and Shivneel Kumar.

“In the other semifinal Tavua proved too strong as it trounced the Shakir Ali led Nakasi 3-1.
