The 2020-21 ISPS Handa Men’s Premiership is set to kick-off this month and the eight teams participating in the major football league from New Zealand are announcing their squads for the upcoming season.
After a good debut season for Waitakere United, Fijian left-back Shuiab Khan is confirmed in the squad and will play his second season for the club. However, he won’t be the only Fijian in the squad this season as 33-year-old defender Samuela Kautoga joined the team for 2020-21.

Khan is back to Waitakere United after playing the winter football season for Central United at LOTTO NRFL Premier Men’s, one of the most important regional leagues in New Zealand. He was playing regularly for Central United until the season was cancelled due to restrictions caused by COVID-19.
Waitakere’s first match of the season will be against Canterbury United on November 14. You can check the full league schedule by clicking here.
