MARIST has released its 16-man playing roster yesterday for the Oceania Champions League quarterfinal trip to Vanuatu.
This is ahead of their departure for Port Vila this afternoon.
The obvious omissions from the list are young defender John Aeta and Alwin Ray.
Aeta and Ray were part of the team during the Group D competition held at Lawson Tama during February and March.
The omissions of Aeta and Ray reduced the number of traveling players from 18 to 16.
Marist’s Oceania Champions league quarterfinal match up against Nalkutan is set for 3pm at the Korman Stadium in Port Vila this Saturday.
The winner will progress into the semifinal going against the winner of the other last-eight encounter between Lautoka and AS Dragon.
The two-legged semifinals will begin on April 21.
