After a five-year absence, the return of the Samoa Football Cup competition has been lauded as a great success.
Football Federation Samoa president Laupama Solomona said the success of the competition came down to everyone who was involved.
“The tournament has been a huge success,” Solomona said.
“I want to thank all the management, players, coaches, referees, FFS staff and supporters for making this tournament possible.”
Solomona also acknowledged the support from FIFA through the Forward programme, as well as key sponsors Rev Faitoaga Tolua and Vailima Breweries.
The format for the competition saw the National League teams placed into five different zone teams.
This brought together 20 registered clubs from Upolu making up four zones, while the remaining zone was made up of clubs from Savaii.
Both the men’s and women’s divisions were taken out by Manufili, with the club also doing well in the individual awards.
Women’s goalkeeper Jecky Toma took the Golden Glove while Lapalapa Toni secured the Golden Boot and Andrew Setefano was named Most Valuable Player.
In the women’s division Manulua took second place with Hazel Peleti taking Most Valuable Player and Golden Boot.
In the men’s division the runners up were Manualii.
The Golden Glove was won by Solomona Aufa’i of Manumea.
