PICTURE GALLERY: Fiji Football Veteran Players' Dinner, Nadi, Saturday, 4 October 2014 + miscellaneous pics

Nadi 4 defeated Tailveu-Naitasiri 0 in the first match of 2014 IDC @ Prince Charles Park, Saturday, 4 October 2014. This game showed the huge gap in class between the top six or seven teams (Nadroga is borderline) and the next group of teams such as Navua and Tailevu-Naitasiri. This is a perpetual problem for Fiji football. It was here 30 years ago and is still a problem today. Perhaps new clubs should be formed in places such as Namaka, Saru, and Sabeto, and/or there should be a second Suva team. These teams might make up a more competitive bottom half of the national league.
