Babasiga Lions Set Higher Goals For 2019 Season

The Labasa Football Asso­ciation officials have set higher goals for 2019 but at the same time they are hoping to retain their players for the 2019 Vodafone Premier League.

This was confirmed to SUNsports yesterday by team manager Nilesh Lal.

Dubbed the Babasiga Lions, the team had their training run at Subrail Park and Lal said they are aiming to win this year’s Vodafone Premier League and secure a spot in the OFC Champions League.

“At the moment no transfer has been made meaning no one ap­plied to leave,” he said.

“The window transfer was re­cently opened so anything is pos­sible right to the last minute.”

Lal said the Association has ap­pointed Johan Leewai to be their head coach.

‘We are thankful for his com­mitment and dedication over the years.

“Last year we had the coaching services of Anand Sami for the Vodafone Fiji FACT and Battle of the Giants (B.O.G) and Leewai came in for the Courts Inter-Dis­trict Championship (IDC).”

Last year Labasa reached the final of the Vodafone Fiji FACT and semi-finals of the B.O.G and Courts IDC.

“We finished fifth in the Vodafone Premier League last year. Current­ly, the players have been attending the training sessions,” he added.
