Lautoka look ahead to next O-League

After finishing second in Group B of the 2010 O-League, Fiji representatives Lautoka are already looking ahead to next season.

Lautoka recently finished the group stage with four wins and two losses, falling one point short of Hekari United who became the first team from Papua New Guinea to qualify for the O-League Final.

Fiji Football Association Chief Executive Officer Bob Kumar says he backs Lautoka to go one step further next season.

“Lautoka played well in this edition of the O-League. They had some good results and a few upsets so hopefully they will be able to go a notch up next time,” Kumar said.

Kumar has confirmed that Lautoka will again represent Fiji in OFC's premier club competition, with the 2011 O-League set to commence in October 2010.

“Lautoka will once again be representing Fiji in the O-League competition since they claimed the 2009 National League title. The winner of the Fiji Sun Weet Bix National Football League this year will feature in the following 2011-2012 season,” Kumar said.

Meanwhile three Fijian players will feature in the 2010 O-League final with national reps Tuimasi Manuca, Pita Bolitoga representing Hekari and wonder boy Roy Krishna playing for Waitakare United.

The O-league home and away final will be played on Saturday 17 April and Sunday 2 May.
