Singh happy with Ba

The big centre-back was on show to football fans across the globe last week at the FIFA Club World Cup UAE 2010 and put in a strong showing as his Hekari United side fell to a 3-0 defeat against Al Wahda.
He will pull on the Papua New Guinea team’s shirt for the remainder of the 2011 O-League but still has strong ties to his Fijian club Ba and is likely to return after his stint with Hekari.
Fellow Fijian clubs Rewa and Lautoka had been linked with the 22-year-old but he says a move is not on the cards.
“I am not contemplating any switch at district level in Fiji at the moment,” he told Fijilive.
“My focus right now is the O-League with Hekari and I am fully committed to playing for the club on both the domestic and international scene.
“I was born and brought up in Ba and my father has been an official of the district so Ba will always be my first choice. I am not sure when I will return to the local competition in Fiji but I can say that I will not leave Ba for any other district for now.”
Footballing prowess runs in the Singh blood – Alvin’s father is former Ba manager Arvin Singh and his younger brother Shelvin plays for Rewa.
Alvin is one of six Fijian players that were part of Hekari’s Club World Cup campaign, the others being Pita Bolaitoga, Tuimasi Manuca, Malakai Tiwa, Simione Tamanisau and Osea Vakatalesau.
That group will encounter plenty more familiar faces in Hekari’s next O-League game early next year. The Tommy Mana-coached side are set to take on Fijian champions Lautoka in a rescheduled fixture on January 15.
