Recognise this guy?


Probably not. If you follow lower league football you'll probably more likely to remember him like this.


Name: Nasoni Waqaseduadua

Date of Birth: 25.11.1979

Place of Birth: Suva, Fiji

Nasoni Waqaseduadua is a former Fijian international winger who made 34 appearances for the Pacific Islanders scoring 9 goals, the most famous of which was the winner in a 2-1 victory over near neighbours Australia. In a career which started at Ba Electric in his homeland, Waqaseduadua was picked up by English club Port Vale where he played for five seasons between 2001 and 2006. However, he was forced to retire at the age of 27 after a cruciate ligament injury on international duty against New Zealand.

Waqaseduadua spent time studying the game back in Fiji where he closely followed the European game before returning to Britain in the summer of 2009 hoping to begin a new career in the game as a manager.

Upon returning to Europe, Waqaseduadua directed his agent to apply for every single vacancy which occurred. It didn't matter how big or small the team was as long as they were in England, Scotland, France, Germany, France, Holland or Spain then he'd take it. No sooner had his agent applied for all the available jobs when Nasoni's phone rang.

It was Chester City offering him a job in the Blue Square Premier, only trouble was they were in minus figures. Minus twenty-five points to be exact, and Waqaseduadua is only a novice so he decided to steer clear of the Deva Stadium. Then a second call, this time from Scottish First Division club Greenock Morton, and the Fijian liked what he heard and so signed a two year deal with Morton. It was at this point that Waqaseduadua showed his prowess in the transfer market bringing in Willy Topp, Lucien Mettomo and Godwin Antwi on free transfers along with securing loan deals for promising youngsters like Lauri Dalla Valle and Josh Thompson.

However, after a promising start at Cappielow Park things soon turned sour and Waqaseduadua left less than three months into his contract. However, as Morton replaced him with John Brown it left a vacancy at Scottish Second Division club Clyde and the Fijian and Brown swapped jobs. It was at Clyde where Nasoni has really flexed his transfer muscles and using the league rules with no limits on loans to his advantage as promising young player after promising young player joined the Bully Wee. Players such as Gael Kakuta, Davide Petrucci, Febian Brandy and Zavon Hines along with a massive fifteen other players joined on loan, and with such a strong squad Waqaseduadua guided Clyde to the Scottish Second Division title.

The summer of 2010 saw Waqaseduadua agree a new one year contract with Clyde but also saw him miss out on the permenant transfers of some of his loans stars as Febian Brandy, Ritchie De Laet, Stephen O'Halloran and Jay Emmanuel-Thomas all saw their futures elsewhere. However, Nasoni had made an impression on many of the players who agreed a second season at Clyde, among those were Corry Evans, Ciaran Clarke and Danijel Subotic. Joining the loan players were free transfers like Kevin Phillips, Shelton Martis and Ben Alnwick, players who have played Premiership football.

So where are we now? It's October 2010 and we're nine games into the Scottish First Division season, Clyde sit proudly in pole position at this early stage and can boast an unbeaten record but it's a long season and with teams such as Dundee, Inverness CT and Hamilton in this league then Waqaseduadua will have to do everything in his power to turn Clyde into an SPL team.
