Dreketi is the only team out of eight team in the Vodafone Fiji FACT that has not engraved its name on the Fiji FACT trophy.
The side are no longer minnows of the Premier Division after creating some major upsets in past tournaments and Vodafone Premier League.
And for sure the northern underdogs would be aiming for their first Vodafone Fiji FACT title this year.
Coach Johan Leewai has worked hard to build a strong side with mixture of some experience and youth players.
Their recent performance in the Vodafone Premier League have shown that they can be a team to beat with their own style of football.
Dreketi will rely on the experience of former Rewa defender Usaid Tadu, former Labasa national midfielder Thomas Vulivuli and former Rakiraki rep Daniel Dass and Peni Sokia.
The return of former national and Labasa striker Anish Khem and defender Krishnil Krishna with nippy Apisai Sesewa and Vilikesa Sowani, Dreketi no doubt will be a team to figure in this year’s Vodafone Fiji FACT.
Over the past seasons in top level football, Dreketi has probably learnt the lesson that long term success comes from building their own set of players.
The can be surprise packet at the 2018 Vodafone Fiji FACT if they turn some magic from last year’s appearance.
Playing against all top guns they will have nothing to lose and if they play with their hearts they will provide many anxious moment for other sides in the pool.
