Adam (no 10) in action against Juventus in Canon LCC
His glittering performance in the 23rd Canon Lion City Cup is the testament why he is rated as one of the country's brightest footballing prospect.

His commanding presence as the skipper during that tournament eventually led the National Football Academy (NFA) U15 to the respectable third position in that youth tournament that also featured the boys from renowned club sides such as CR Flamengo and Juventus.

So little surprise came last Sunday when Adam Swandi emerged as the winner from the pool of five nominees in annual "Dollah Kassim Award", an initiative by the Football Association of Singapore (FAS),in partnership with The New Paper, Turkish Airlines and Singapore Pools.

This award is named after the late Singapore football legend who passed away last year with aim to aspire young talent with the wining player earning a training stint at a top football club overseas.

In the award present ceremony held at the Amara Hotel, Adam received the prizes that include a trophy from Mr Ezaad Abdullah (pictured above second from right), son of the late Mr Dollah Kassim.

“I am honoured with this win and I could not have done this without the support of my team and guidance from my coaches. I now look forward to my overseas training stint at a top club.” said Adam after the ceremony.

In conjunction of this ceremony, the NFA also held its 11th graduation ceremony where various NFA coaches such as U15's Coach Dejan Gulscevic, NFA U16's Takuma Koga gave an account of their team's performance to those presence
