Vereti Dickson believes that Esy Kool Nalovo FC can claim their first ever Vodafone National Regional Club Championship 2020 which gets underway at the Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka today.

The current national and Nadi goalkeeper is among the star-studded Nalovo side that will face defending champion Yalalevu (Ba) in their opening fixture.

Other Nadi reps include Napolioni Qasevakatini, Serevi Waqa, Vuniuci Tikomaimereke, Christopher Kumar, Josua Tawake, and Nailaga, Ba native Sakaraia Naisua.

“We have star-studded side and on paper there should not be any excuse.  The onus is on the boys to perform. We know that Yalalevu is a defending champion side, a good team and it will be best sorted out in the field,” he said.

“We failed to win trophies last year so a win will bring good cheer to Nadi fans.”

Dickson, 32 is not new to the NCC as he has represented various Nadi clubs such as Namaka FC, Malolo Transmitter FC and Southern Cross FC over the years.

“Looking at the performance of our team in the local league it is pretty impressive and that is what we shall bank on,” he added.

The team had their captain’s run at the Korovuto College ground yesterday where Nadi coach Ravinesh Kumar assisted club coach Nadeem Mohammed.

Esy Kool Nalovo FC is in Group B with Northpole FC (Suva) and defending champion Yalalevu Club Football (Ba).

Group A has hosted Greenstar FC along with Lautoka’s Press FC and Rewa’s Kasavu Sports FC.
