The 2020-21 ISPS Handa Men’s Premiership is set to kick-off this month and the eight participating teams are looking for new players to strengthen their squads for the upcoming season. One of the most traditional football teams from New Zealand, Waitakere United, confirmed that Fijian player Samuela Kautoga joined the team.
