Students to make Pacific Cup debut

By Sunil Sharma

Four high school students will get their first taste of international football when they represent Nadi in the upcoming Pacific Cup in Auckland, New Zealand.

The four include Central College's IDC winning captain Rusiate Matarerega and Napolioni Gasevakatini, Swami Vivekananda College's Temesi Tuwai and Nawai Secondary School's Vuniuci Tikomaimereke.

Matarerega is the son of former Nadi and Lautoka utility Watisoni Voli while Tikomaimereke is the son of former Nadroga and Nadi sweeper Kini Tubi.

Nadi boss Tarun Patel told FijiLive the youngsters are part of their development plans and need all the exposure possible ahead of the new domestic season.

"We strongly believe in youth development and these young boys have come through the development ranks. Their examination and other commitments are over and they are free to travel with the team to New Zealand."

"They are our future and by playing in the Pacific Cup, they will gain a lot of confidence and exposure."

Patel also confirmed that they will not be holding back any player who intends to leave the district in the new window.

"If a player wants to leave Nadi then we will not hesitate in giving him his release provided all contactual requirements are fulfilled and met."

Nadi flies out for the Pacific Cup on the 20th and the tournament will be played from 21-25th at the Mt Smart Stadium in Auckland.
