Propel from obscurity - scribe on COE football

I must admit I have not been giving much attention to COE football until this afternoon at the Old Police Academy. Alerted by "Liga Singapura" that the title decider was going to be staged at the once Police training facilities, I decided to head down with my camera to snap some shots between Home United and Tanjong Pagar United.

Mendy propelled HU at expenses of old bosses Yet, it wasn't really a nail-bitter when both Etoile and Home
