Dickson To Lead Nadi

Nadi’s top choice goalkeeper Vereti Dickson is likely to lead the Esy Kool/Kris Transport sponsored Nadi Foot­ball team at the 2020 Vodafone Fiji FACT.

The Green Machine is the defend­ing champions and will take on host Lautoka at the Churchill Park, Lau­toka in their opening pool match.

Dickson said: “There is a lot of pressure to defend any title. The boys are preparing well.”

Head coach Kamal Swamy said: “It will be very tough to play on Lautoka home soil. It will be a chal­lenge for us. We respect Lautoka but we will do our best.

“I know Anjinesh Prasad (Lau­toka Coach) and Ravinesh Kumar. He has done well for the team. This year Lautoka played in the semi-final in Suva. Definitely, they are in serious business.”

Nadi is beaming with confidence with the inclusion of Shivneel Pil­lay, Seru Naikaci, Joel Severo, Ne­tani Kacanavesi, Tevita Ravia.

“We have recruited so many young players. We are going in as a devel­opment team as we focus on the next season. We will try our best to win the tournament as well,” he said.
