“Had her this year, and we won the Police Interdistrict competition, Vodafone Pre­mier League title, Fiji FACT and being the best player of the tournament.

“It means a lot to me. And firstly I would like to thank God for giving me the strength and guiding me throughout the tourna­ment.

“This is dedicated to her and to my family – my wife, parents and my brothers.

“And also thanks to the hardworking offi­cials of Suva Football Association.”

Dave started playing for Suva since 2012 and looks forward to another great season of football next year.

“For next year, I hope to win more tour­naments and continue with the winning streak.”
