"Thanks for your support, even though you're the ONLY ONE, it means a lot to us..."

This is an article contributed by 17-year old student Daniel Lau, who himself is a passionate local football supporter, who was once featured on the newspaper for his undying support to the local football. A familiar figure at the airport whenever the any of the national teams depart or return from their overseas assignment. Below, Daniel detailed with write-up and pictures, as he shares with us the moments before the YOG football depart for their training tour in London yesterday. BON VOYAGE, BOYS!! Daniel Lau Was there at Changi Airport Terminal 3 today to send the YOG Football Team off to London.

Team gathering at T3. I attracted many curious stares from family members as they saw me donned in the red Lions' Jersey and being the only fan there. Some of them even w

Sengkang's woes continue...

SHORT SCRIBE OF THE GAME Just back from Hougang Stadium and saw Sengkang Punggol crushed out of the Singapore Cup by Albirex Niigata (S). 1-0 was the scoreline and Ryuta Hayashi scored the only goal in the 50th minute and Shahir Hamzah, again, was sent off by referee Sukhbir Singh in the 81st minute.

SHORT SCRIBE OF THE GAME The initial fear of the weather and the artificial surface were proved unfounded, as VPL side South Melbourne crossed their first hurdle of their Singapore Cup debut by beating Gombak United 2-1 at the Jalan Besar Stadium. Being the more composed of the two, the semi-professional outfit from the state of Victoria impressed the crowd with some neat tidy football over the largely ineffective one-dimensional game dished out by the Bulls. PICTURES FROM THE GAME (Pictured above) Gombak was skippered by former international Bah Mamadou (left, number 6), as Jaslee Hatta was suspended for this tie due to suspension carried over from last year, while his counterpart RamazanTavsancioglu looks at the sky wondering if the weather would be cooler. Abdul Malik was the referee of the match conducting the coin-toss. Horror struck the Bulls as a defensive lapse in the 12th minute allowed the Melburnians to take the lead through midfielder Daniel Vasilevski. Striker F
