The Nasea football team are favourites to win one of the major titles on stake at the week-long Vanua Levu Muslim Inter District Championship (IDC) at Subrail Park, Labasa.

They have recruited five players out of Vanua Levu to boost their campaign.

Nasea football coach Roneel Ram said Shoheb Hussain, Hamzaa Hussain, and Altaf Saheb are originally from Nasea but are now residing in New Zealand.

“They have returned to support their team,” he said.

“The other two players are Mira Saheb from Suva and Nathan Hussain, son of former Savusavu coach Billy Hussain.”

Ram said, they have 15 players playing in the super premier division while 19 are in the premier division.

“I have been the coach for this team for seven years and the last time we took out the super premier cup was in 2014. However, we have never won the premier cup. Having trained for one month and equipped with the best possible players we are aiming to return home with a trophy.

“We are not going to underestimate any team as they have done their preparations and are here to win.”

Ram said they would like to thank their sponsors Maatuk Motor Spares and Azaad Construction Company Limited for their support.

“We also would like to urge our fans, families, relatives and people of the Friendly North to be part of this worthy cause and support their teams.”

Nasea beat Valebasoga 2-0 in their Super Premier clash and held defending Premier Division champions Taveuni to a nil-all draw.
