Dou­ble joy for Hoo Tat Chang

New Straits Times - - Sport -

HO O Tat Chang Sports Club foot­ballers were on cloud nine af­ter clinch­ing both the Veter­ans and Mas­ters ti­tles at the Wa­ter­fall Rangers-Delta Force 2nd In­vi­ta­tional Soc­cer 7’s 2017 re­cently.

The Cam­bo­dian out­fit — the only for­eign team in the fray — did not come with a full force and roped in for­mer Malacca striker Sham­surin Ab­dul Rah­man and Pe­nang’s Chee Wan Hoe for added strength.

Datuk Hoo Tat Chang, the founder of the club, said he brought some play­ers from his fac­tory in Cam­bo­dia and blended them with for­mer lo­cal play­ers and the de­ci­sion paid off.

In the Mas­ters cat­e­gory fi­nal, Sham­surin’s goal in the first minute of the sec­ond half helped Hoo Tat Chang de­feat Wa­ter­fall Rangers SC 1-0 while in the Veter­ans fi­nal, they crushed Kuala Lumpur’s Um­bro A Sports 3-1. K. Kan­diah
