Player and coach pass away in Fiji

This Saturday is a sad day for Fijian football as a young player and a coach died tragically. Dreketi women’s coach Karalaini Matare and 16-year-old player Shainaz Begum were walking along a road when a truck tumbled causing the logs to fall from the truck whereby it hit the two victims who were by the side of the road.

Despite being very young, Begum was a regular starter in Dreketi’s team that contested Vodafone Women’s Senior League this year.
