For the first time, the Labasa Under-12 and  U14 football teams have secured a sponsor to boost their participation at the Fiji Primary Schools Inter-District Championship.

During the presentation at Labasa Muslim Primary School last Saturday, the sponsorship deal was unveiled by Nand General Works and Repairs director Rahul Nand.

Nand, who is originally from Labasa but operates his business in Nadi, was moved by the teams’ achievements last year and decided  to back them up.

Teams’ director Parnesh Sharma thanked Nand and said this was the first time they had someone to sponsor them.

“The Labasa U14 won the IDC while the Labasa U12 was the runners-up. Both teams are confident of winning this year,” Sharma said.

Labasa U14 coach Faizul Hussein said winning was easy but defending the title would be hard.

“The players are from ten primary schools in Labasa and have been training for a few weeks now,” Hussein said.

“Labasa has been participating in this tournament ever since its inception and has been doing great so far and we want to maintain that good record.”

Labasa U12 coach Phul Singh said they are confident of a win.

“Our mission is to accomplish our goal that is to return home with glory. I would also like to thank the parents for their support.”

Labasa Primary Schools Sports Association president Vincent Sahayam congratulated the teams and wished them well.
