Klang Sikhs has survived the first round of the Selangor League Division Two hockey tourney. On Nov 12, they will compete in the next round, hoping to make it to the finals.
The self-funded team emerged third in the league in 2014, their best performance thus far.
“This time around, the competition is really keen. We have many more teams,” team manager Kuldip Singh tells Asia Samachar.
The second division of the league, organised by Selangor Hockey Association, consists of 23 teams. Six teams have made it to the second stage. Klang Sikhs are up against Selayang and MBPJ Tigers in the next stage.
“We are all self-funded. Our juniors get some funding for Klang gurdwara for the turf booking and a few other items,” he said.
Klang Sikhs emerged champs of the recent Malaysia-Singpore Games (Maspore) 2017 held in Ipoh last month.
