Defending O-League champion, Hekari United of Papua New Guinea will not be able to field three Fijian players in their opening fixture against Amicale FC of Vanuatu this Saturday.

The three players; Alvin Singh and Malakai Tiwa of Ba and Osea Vakatalesau of Lautoka are yet to be cleared by their districts and Fiji Football Association.

Fiji FA chief executive officer Bob Kumar confimed the ineligibility of the trio.

"The three players have not been cleared and Fiji FA will only issue their ITC once their respective districts have cleared them," said Kumar.

"There is dispute between the players and their districts and they have to sort things out before the parent body clears the players to feature for their new club."

"Both Ba and Lautoka have stated that the players have breached their contracts and in this case all the dues to needs to be settled."

"We have informed Hekari about the situation and the club is in correspondence with Fiji FA and the districts."

However, Pita Bolaitoga and Tuimasi Manuca who starred for the PNG club in the O-League last season are cleared to feature this season and will be sure starters.

Hekari has already lost star midfielders in the form of Alick Maemae and Stanley Waita who have both joined Amicale FC of Vanuatu and will feature against their former side in Port Moresby.
