Assalamualaikum Warrahmatullahi Wabarrakatuh and good morning.
Executive Committee Members of NFABD
Mr. Mike Wong, NFABD Technical Director,
Officials and staff of NFABD and participants
It is with great pleasure that I am able to attend as Guest of Honour for the opening ceremony of the FIFA Basic Goalkeeping Course, which has been scheduled to commence today 4th May until 8th May 2015.
On behalf of NFABD, I would like to welcome our FIFA Instructor, Mr Haroon Amur Hamed Bartamani of Oman, as well as all local participants who will be involved in this course.
I believe, with the support from FIFA through such courses as this, our local coaches will reap benefits that are rarely present in Brunei. So please be open minded with all different techniques and styles of coaching goalkeepers and hopefully, one day, our current goalkeeping coaches would be able to produce top quality goalkeepers. Through producing successful qualified goalkeeping coaches, this will naturally contribute to the standard of goalkeepers in our national leagues.
I shall wish all our participants the best of luck and take this opportunity to learn from the FIFA Instructor. Stay committed striving for excellence for a better future of Brunei Football. As for Mr Haroon Amur Hamed Bartamani, welcome to Brunei and I hope you have a pleasant stay.
With the kalimah of Bismillahir Rahman Nirrahim, I officially declare the FIFA Basic Goalkeeping Course 2015 Open.
Wabillahi taufiq walhidayah wassalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
