Our first team, U21s, and U17s trained together this morning, on a very hot Good Friday at our holding home stadium, Jurong West.
Our U21s worked on the fundamentals. Their best result in the Prime League this season was their 4-2 win over NFA U17 back in March. They play their next game against Geylang International on 18 April.
Our U17 goalkeepers — Nabil, Shah, and Arthur, were trained this morning for the first time by first team goalkeeper coach, William Phang. From the one hour and fifteen minute ‘relaxed’ session, William was impressed with our young boys saying, “The goalkeepers from the U17s were hardworking and I discovered something in them.”
William also believes it’s important for all our goalkeepers, from the first team down to the youth teams, to train together and said, “It’s an opportunity for the junior goalkeepers to learn and see how to carry themselves both on and off the field from the seniors. It’s a motivation for the juniors to train harder to reach where our seniors are.”
We can confirm that our U17 goalkeepers were completely drenched in sweat after their session with William.
The first team had a recovery session this morning after a week of intense training. Our next game will be in the AFC Cup, where we will be travelling to Pahang, Malaysia to face Felda United for the away leg on 19 April.
