Under pressure Tavua boss steps down

By Sunil Sharma

Tavua Football Assocation Acting President Ummat Mohammed has stepped down from her position.

The businesswoman who was appointed to act in the absence of president Shalen Roy following the suspension of interim president Rizwan Khan told FijiLive this morning that immense pressure from officials and non cooperation forced her to make the decision.

"I just decided to step down as I already have so much on my plate. The fact that the other officials are not cooperating and assisting is also very disappointing. We were appointed to work in the best interest of the district but it seems some people want to do things on their own and do not believe in teamwork," she said.

"I have consulted president Roy and Fiji FA chief executive Bob Kumar before tendering my resignation."

"They both wanted me to continue but I have told them of the difficulties that I am facing and they finally agreed to my decision."

"I have been advised that Fiji FA will be calling a special meeting next week to discuss further on the affairs of the district. It is really unfortunate as we were trying our best to get things on track and I had already lined up sponsors for our Local League competition," she concluded.

Secretary Ishaaq Khan is currently looking after the affairs of the team and will lead the charge for the Goldminers against Lautoka this afternoon.

Tavua hosts Lautoka at 3pm.

Meanwhile, a premier division match between Tailevu North and Lami scheduled for this afternoon at Risikul College Ground in Nasinu has been postponed due to poor ground condition and bad weather in the Central Division.
