Sports Fiesta by the Beach
By Eagles Admin on 12 June 2011
Unearthing future stars has always been a main forte of Geylang United F.C., and it has once again been proved as our COE squads, led by Youth Coach Khidir Khamis, delivered a brilliant performance at the Community Sports Festival @ South East Sports Fiesta by the Beach.
Organised by the Community Sports Clubs in the South East District and supported by the South East Community Development Council, a long time community partner of Geylang United, the four-month long event is aimed at forging a closer bond between the residents and also a chance to let them know their neighbours better. Both our COE Under-16 and Under-18 squads took part in the Beach Soccer challenge, and our Under-18 team emerged winners eventually.
“Geylang United has always been a strong advocate of such community events and will continue to do so. It is also an excellent opportunity for the players to bond with others through the beautiful game of football,” said Eagles General Manager, Mr. Lim Tong Hai.
Geylang United’s South East Young Eagles Soccer School is also supported by the SECDC.
“The participation of Geylang United F.C. at the Beach Soccer Challenge has added more youthful energy to CSF @ SE. Participants were thrilled by the performance of the Geylang United F.C. squad. We hope to have the continued support and participation of Geylang United F.C. at future CSF @ SE events,” said Mr. Ngoi Khor Peng, Chairman, CSF @ SE Organising Committee.
