PNG duo ready to help Babasiga Lions

BY midday yesterday, Labasa was the only side to have submitted work permits for their foreign players.

Papua New Guinean duo David Muta and Koriak Upaga are free to feature for the Lions at the Inkk Mobile Battle of the Giants.

There has been some movement in the last transfer window with players such as Ali Anthony and Henry Uche moving from Lautoka FC to Navua and Suva FC respectively.

The Blues have also seen two strike aces from Vanuatu join them — Jean Kaltak and Niko Jack.

Fiji FA chief executive officer Bob Kumar had earlier warned that all districts using foreign players needed to give the Fiji FA a copy of their work permit.

"This is a mandatory requirement as Fiji FA in association with the department of immigration are making an effort to minimise the rate of illegal immigrants issue and deportation of players," Kumar said.

Other foreign players registered for the BOG are George Jeremy (Suva), Robert Tasso (Rewa), James Naka (Rewa), Kenneth Opara (Suva), Gentility James (Navua), Nelson Odaiji (Lautoka),

Kumar, meanwhile, said the Labasa Town Council had given FFA the guarantee that the lights at Subrail Park will be up to standard for the Labasa-Navua and Rewa-Lautoka matches on Saturday.

The home team's fixture with Navua kicks-off at 5.15pm and the second spell will be played under lights followed by the 7.15pm Design Engineering Lautoka-Rewa game.

"From what I gather they (LTC) have sought help from Suva to sort that out," Kumar said.

Kumar said tickets for the main grandstand was $15 for adults and $6 for children. The side seating on the main stand are going for $12 for adults and $5 children. Seats on the two stands behind the goalmouths will cost $10 for adults and $3 for children while tickets for the embankment are selling for $7 (adults) and $2 (children).
