Nigerians to trial with Blues and Nadroga

By Reginald Chandar

Football fans may get the chance to see Nigerian players in action for Nadroga and Lautoka during the Battle Of Giants later this month.

Eight players from Nigeria are arriving tomorrow to trial with the two western districts and if things go well then they will be fielded in the tournament.

Lautoka FA boss Shalendra Prasad said they are keen to sign to a sweeper, a central midfielder and a striker as they are lacking badly in the three positions.

“We will trial the players first before deciding on signing them as we already have a lot of young and capable players in our squad.”

“If the coaching staff recommends them, then only we will sign three players.”

The four players to trial with the Blues include Ekure Sylvester, Onyeka Naamdi, Morka Chika Cross and Oparaemetuche Kenneth Onyema.

Meanwhile, Nadroga is keen to sign a goalkeeper, a midfielder and a striker.

Nadroga president in an earlier interview had told FijiLive that they had to take the step to bolster their squad as Nadroga players were not showing full commitment and many players often missed training.

Lautoka signed the first Nigerian player, Sanni Issa in 2009 and used his services in the O-League and local competitions.

Nadroga also had three Nigerians in 2010.
