QUOTE:

Fri , 27th Feb 2015 will be another memorable day for me !

At 3.45 pm , I visited Bedok Stadium unannounced & witnessed few players practising free kicks in the hot sun while waiting for training to commence . It was a delightful spectacle of Mustaqim pitting his chipping skills against Josef , Kento , Bruno and Farhan . The camaraderie and jovial exchanges were great teaching moments in community integration.

Following an intensive one hour work-out , the players were all smartly attired , ready for our planned resident engagement at 6 HDB blocks fronting the stadium.
With pride and confidence , the players greeted residents – young & old , invited them to our 1st home game against the Protectors , presented key chains and potato chips . The smiles and appreciation from residents made this simple initiative , a meaningful day for all of us!

My appreciation to Andrew & Jorg for their exemplary leadership ,Darren from Dreamatron – our sponsor , fellow MC members for their presence and last but not the least – the players for your enthusiasm , cheer and dedication to this community initiative.
