- Match 4
Friday, December 16, 2016
Terengganu U12 team being the Malaysia 2016 National U12 state Champion, had good youth development system as their players had been put together to train since the age of 7 and have been playing together now for 4-5 years.
Tabuan tried hard and competed well in game as both side created even number of chances in both half of game, with Tabuan hitting the goalpost twice and Terengganu‘s goalkeeper making 2 point blank saves in game from Tabuan open chances.
The Malaysian took their chances well with goals in the 8, 12 and 46mins of game that win them the game.
Tabuan have gain another valuable lesson with this experience and this technical abilities gap of our young players comparing to other regional teams here that will need to be bridge with more training frequency and quality trainings in the younger age group (below age 12) to develop our young players early.
This, being our 1st year in forming and training a U12
Elite Team to compete and by playing here help us to gauge where we are in term of our young players‘ playing abilities.
