In the U10 grade, DPS defeated Nehru Memorial Primary 2-0.

In the U12 Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Primary went down 1-0 and in the U14 grade SSM Primary School lost 4-3.

Coach Roneel Prasad commended the effort of Rishaal Shankar , 10, who was awarded the Golden Boy trophy.

“Shankar played in all the winning grades and was also the captain of the U10 and U12 teams,” Prasad said.

Prasad added it was dedication which helped the school win three titles in the Suva Primary Schools Football Association competition.

“We have never won any trophies and this is a milestone achievement for the school,” Prasad said.

“I’m overwhelmed with the win knowing the sacrifices and dedication that these young boys have done to get here.”

Neo-Tech Solution director Jai Shankar was pleased with the performance despite the wet weather.
