Football: Felda United Recruiting

AMBITIOUS Felda United are doing all they can to join the big fish in the Super League after going on a recruitment drive for the new season.

Having finished a creditable sixth in their debut Premier League outing last season, Felda coach Reduan Abdullah feels the club side has the right ingredients to make an impact this season.

The biggest catch for Felda was the signing of central defender Nazrulerwan Makmur from KL Plus while Reduan has reinforced the midfield with the signing of Rashid Mamud from Pahang, Khairul Anuar Jamil (Plus) and Chow Chee Weng (Sabah).

Other newcomers are strikers Hasmawi Hassan (Kedah), Nizam Abu Bakar (Police) and S. Sunder (Sabah), goalkeeper Ahmad Zainal Rabin (Perlis) and defenders Abdul Ghani Abdul Rahman (Selangor) and Munir Amran (Sabah).

Felda will get a chance to test their team in an eight-team pre-season tournament on Nov 15-23 where they will face Super League side Selangor, Premier League rivals Proton and FAM Cup side CIMB in the preliminary round.

The matches will be held at Bangi, Kajang and Subang Jaya with final scheduled for Nov 23 at the KLFA Stadium in Cheras.

TEAMS — Group A: Selangor, Proton, CIMB, Felda United; Group B: Kuala Lumpur, KL Plus, T-Team Kuala Terengganu, Ban Hoe Leong.
