Fijian women’s football coach Charlene Lockington is confident her team will do well at the 2015 Pacific Games in Papua New Guinea next month.

“We mostly have youth players in the team and four of them are high school students,” she said.

“We have some senior players who played in the 2007 Pacific Games in Samoa. PNG, they beat us in Samoa in 2007, but this time we aim to get even,” Lockington said.

Bolstering the side are former Fijiana and goal keeper Mereoni Yabakidrau, Viniana Raiwai and students Luisa Tamanitokula, Annette Nainima, Sonali Rao and Jasper sprinter Miriama Naiobasali.

“We have also secured the services of Vodafone Fijian U20 goalkeeper coach Iosefo Vosaboto who is doing a good job,” she said. “The women have shown a lot of sacrifices and dedication towards preparation.”
