Suva marches in camp for FACT

By Sunil Sharma

Suva players are taking their Fiji FACT campaign seriously and will march into camp tomorrow to prepare thoroughly for the first major football team on the Fiji FA calendar.

And the district will also become the first to go into camp for the tournament which gets underway with the opening round next Sunday at Churchill Park in Lautoka.

Coach Gurjit Singh told FijiLive today that preparations have commenced and the only setback for them is the adverse weather conditions in the Central Division.

“The rainy weather is a major setback in our preparation and I have been trying my best from the past few weeks to build team combination but this has not been very successful and I hope to see some improvements in the coming days.”

"We also do not have a proper ground to train and this is another setback and we hope to secure a ground as soon as possible to prepare thoroughly."

"Fitness of some players is still concerning me and that is the reason behind calling an early camp so all players can remain together and train according to the program that we have set up."

"We will need to be fully fit and mentally prepared for the switch back to 60 minutes football in Fiji FACT and I am working on our game plan for the tournament at the moment."

Suva’s opening match will be against Nadi in the first round on May 6 at 12.30pm.
