Football mourns loss of youngster

The Fiji Football Association, its board members and the entire football fraternity is mourning the death of former Tavua U19 Youth goalkeeper Seci Veigravi.

Fiji FA president Rajesh Patel said his thoughts and prayers go out to the family in this difficult time.

"To lose a family member is never easy, and to lose someone with their whole life ahead of them is devastating," Patel told Fiji FA media.

"As a father myself I can only imagine what Seci’s family are going through. I truly hope our prayers can provide a little comfort for them during this time."

“We have lost an upcoming player and a true son of Fiji. One who had football in his heart. Football was his life.”

“I convey my heartfelt sympathy and deepest condolence to the grieving family and I pray to the Almighty that his soul rests in peace,” Patel added.
