As it was previously reported, Fiji Football Association set a partnership to send young Fijian players to Australia. Five players are going to join Frankston Pine FC in January: Ba midfielder Kishan Sami, Nasinu goalkeeper Mohammed Alzaar Alam, Rewa midfielder Savenaca Baledrokadroka, Lautoka midfielder Shivam Naidu and Nadi striker Tito Vodowaqa. All of them played the OFC Olympic Qualifier this year.
According to Victorian Multicultural Sports Association president Vishwar Kumar, the players will join the team later in January when their paperwork is done. The five players will sign contracts and work in Melbourne until they can secure professional contracts with A-League teams.
Frankston Pines play in State League Division 3. This club is based in Frankston North, a suburb from Melbourne.
