New Navua goalie impresses in DPL

20-year-old Jayshneel Sivan made a grand debut for Navua in the Digicel Premier League against Lautoka at Churchill Park on Sunday.

Sivan, who hails from Naitata and represented Navua Youth last season made some good saves in both halves and stood tall between the sticks despite conceding a 61st minute winner to 2020 Golden Boot winner Sairusi Nalaubu.

The former Vashist Muni College student was picked ahead of experienced Thakur Narayan in the starting lineup and he did not show any nerves in the tensed encounter.

With more game time, the youngster is expected to grow more both in terms of experience and confidence.

Meanwhile Navua is scheduled to host Labasa in Round 2 of the DPL this Sunday at the Uprising Sports Centre.
