Hockey brains win RSC the UKRC-astro 9's title

The hockey brains of senior veteran double international M. Kalimuthu (soccer and hockey) and a young veteran, former national junior hockey player, St John Davies, won Royal Selangor Club the 9th UKRC-astro International Soccer 9's this evening at the Ulu Klang Recreation Club ground.

The deadly combination saw St John scoring the winning goal off a calculated lay by Kalimuthu in the second half of extra-time for the solitary goal to crack a tough nut in debutant to the tournament, Korean Football Club.

The two day tournament saw twelve teams including hosts, UKRC, battle it out for honours.

UKRC president, Andrew Gopal and his club members indeed must commended for an outstanding effort in organising the tournament of international standards.

Accolades for the club were free flowing at the official dinner last night at the club.

Besides, The Korean Club, the other debutantes were the Gold Coast Koalas team from Australia, who won the Fair Play trophy, and Prince of Songkla University, Thailand.

For a small community based club, good job and well done UKRC!
