The 2002 Sangam Convention Super Premier football winners Malolo aim to repeat that feat at Subrail Park, Labasa this weekend.

Malolo coaches Darmesh Reddy and Vikash Gounder told SUNsports yesterday that they have returned after 15 years to win back the trophy.

“We have some current and former Nadi district reps to assist us with our campaign,” Reddy said.

“They are Shivneel Gounder, Richard Naidu, Vijay Pillay, Manoj Krishna, Pritesh Ram, Vinit Nandan and Karunesh Krishna. Together with these reps we have brought in other talented players to make-up the eighteen member team.”

Reddy said Subrail Park is their favourite hunting ground as it was there they last won the super premier title in 2002.

“That was the first and only time that we had won the super premier division and it was held in Labasa. So this year is very special for us because we have returned and we will make best use of the opportunity so that people can remember us.”

Reddy said they are grateful to their sponsors, M.R Dayal and Sons, Roti Corner Restaurant, Selva Tours, Reddy Civil Contractors, Fed Track and Techcraft Plumbing New Zealand.

“We are also thankful to our clubs Malolo FC and Gandhi FC. We are not here to judge someone and neither to underestimate any team. We are here to participate and return home with a clean win,” he added.
