Malaysian Everton U-17
A group of ECSM have been diligently training young Malaysians every Saturday morning for free. The football training is held at Kelana Jaya at a field, we passionately call "Bellefield". (Perhaps we have to call it Finch Farm now)
Some coaches from Everton actually visited us last year and helped the ECSM coaches on the finer points of football training. The players (both boys and girls) are mostly Under -17 in age. The training sessions are done voluntarily by our team of coaches and they have spent much time with the players for the last 1 year or so.
The efforts bore fruit when on Tuesday (11-11-08), our Under-17 ECSM team beat the Indian U-17 team, 4-0 at the PKNC Ground at Petaling Jaya. The exciting game was watched by large group of interested spectators which included some Exco members of the Selangor state government. Nice of them to stop by.
Well done to the team and bravo to our coaching team.
