Some Pictures from the pre-match training sessions for the "Sultan of Selangor Cup 2009"

Was at the training session of the Singapore sides, who will be facing the Selangor sides in the annual "Sultan of Selangor's Cup" tournament, at the Jalan Besar Stadium.


"That's where the VVIPs gonna be seated..." as Mr Richard Wong (in a dark T-shirt) pointed towards the grandstand.

Two former national skippers - Au Yeong Pak Kuan and current Young Lions coach Terry Pathmanathan had a brief chat.

Former national left-back Robert Sim - nicknamed "The Tank" by the fans in his playing days.

"Now, Hock.. Where is my jersey?" said 1980 Malaysia Cup winning skipper Samad Allapitchay (in white shirt), as he pressed his former team-mate, Ho Kwang Hock (in green top) for an answer, while Dollah Kassim (left) and R Suriamurthi (right) look on.

Lim Tong Hai (no.11) will be making his debut for the veterans, as V Sundramoorthy (15) will be showing his dazzling skills to thrill his fans.

Midfield dynamo Malek Awab doing some stretching before the practice match.

Here is the "Dazzler" in his very best!!

... as the veterans continued with their training

The "Gelek King" - Mr Dollah Kassim in action

Ex-Gombak coach Salim Moin (second from right) tried to work his way out of the crowds.

Class of the 90s (L-R) - Tong Hai, Nasaruddin Jalil, Yahya Madon (back-facing camera), and Syed Faruk.

"Remember guys, the time to meet up tomorrow." reminded Mr Hock as the veterans ended their training session.

The Selangor veterans (in black polo tees) turned up for a catching-up session with their Singapore counterparts shortly after the end of the training session.


Coach Raddy get down to business.

Shaiful Esah (left) and Shahril Ishak positioned themselves.

Tampines Rovers 'keeper Hassan Sunny geared up for action.

That's Shaiful Esah for you - that deadly left foot of his!!

"Watch your man and position!"

Indra Sahdan makes his move with the ball...

Clear header!!

The Selangor team arrived in Singapore just a day after completing a match of their Malaysia Cup campaign and began their training session after Singapore Selection completed theirs.

Selangor's coach K Devan (left in red shirt) guided the Klang Valley side to three domestic titles this year, to him coaching Selangor is like coaching Malaysia's second national team.

A lot of foreign teams have been complaining about the playing surface of the Jalan Besar Stadium, it should be interesting to see the Klang Valley side adapt themselves to the surface like this, especially since the team have barely a day of rest before coming down to Singapore.


  1. Nothing on "Mission Impossible"... as I tried to concentrate on my photo-taking and I learnt a very good lesson - never FLASH on others :P
