“Taking part helps me prepare for the Fijian Under-20 trials,”Chandan said.

Anuve Sanatan coach Bimal Chand said most of the players are students.

“All the players are originally from Anuve and we believe in developing talents in our village and giving them the opportunity,” Chand said.

“The first and the last time our team won the tournament was in 1990.

“This year we aim to take the trophy back home.

“So far played a scoreless draw against TBL Valebasoga and I would like to thank our sponsors Bharti Timber Supplies and Safe Tech Electricals for their support.”
