Playing his first Courts Inter-district championship with Rams Cleaning Services/ All Freight Logistics Suva was special for striker Azariah Soromon.

Not only the 23-years-old won the IDC with the capital city side, he scooped two awards after their 4-0 win against Navua at the HFC Bank Stadium on Monday.

Soromon was awarded the Super Premier division Golden Boot for most goals scored and Golden Ball award for being the best player of the tournament.

The Ni-Vanuatu national recov­ered from an injury last year. This is his second season with Suva.

“The Battle of the Giants was not really good, we tried to train hard for this tournament and we man­aged to come back stronger,” So­romon said.

“First of all, I did not expect to re­ceive this award.

“I want to dedicate this to my fami­ly back home, especially my sister’s daughter and my parents.

“My Vanuatu friends were up at the stands and I thank them for their support.

“During the season we faced a lot of difficulties but we managed to overcome them.”

Suva is ex­pected to face Digicel Pre­mier League champions Rewa in the Champion versus Cham­pion series which would be confirmed later.

“If I play in the CvC, it will be my first one and I hope to help Suva win it too.”

 

Suva coach Babs Khan praised So­romon for his great performance.

“He is a wonderful player, he does wonders; very disciplined and lis­tens to all instructions that’s why he is the best,” Khan said.

Suva goalie Akuila Mateisuva re­ceived the golden gloves award.

Suva was awarded $25000 while Navua received $6000.

In the premier division, Nasinu won $6000 while Seaqaqa returned home with $2000.

Bua won $1,500 as the senior divi­sion champions while runner-up Lami received $1500.
