Delay Upset Navua Football

 

John Wise was disappointed after the postponement of the Vodafone Senior League match between Navua and Lami at the Vashist Muni College on Sunday.

The Navua Football Association said they should have been notified earlier by the Fiji Football Association.

“We were told at the very last hour by the Fiji FA of the postponementall vice president John Wise said.

“The green light was given for Navua to host the game after a team of Fiji FA officials headed by the competitions manager Amitesh Pal inspected the ground on Wednesday.”

Meanwhile, Pal said the game was postponed due to the unplayable ground condition.

“We did inspect the ground on Wednesday and told Navua FA to meet our requirements to ensure the safety of the players.

“We inspected the ground again on game day and requirements were not met as the ground was not up to the playing standard.

“This was a crucial game for both teams so we decided to play the game at a later date.”
