In WATCH IT SELANGOR Part 3 posted this morning, we were told that the MB’s office has not received the Enquiry Report. A reader called and said that the report was sent two weeks ago to the MB’s Office. Now, this is news that the Malay Mail should pursue as I believe that they too were informed that the report has yet to reach the MB.
JUST IN: There is a possibility that the MB will be asked to suggest that UKRC committee will be given charge of the Club House and the field will be under another entity that will later build a condo for ……can you smell it……a condo for “RATS”! We do have one for cows, no?
The hearing starts tomorrow….let’s see if the Selangor government will take side with the little people of UKRC or with some Fat Cats, bent on acquiring that green piece that is the playing field…..that green patch that witnessed many social and sporting activities, local and international.
In 2009, the Star reported on an Under 12 Soccer Sevens Carnial:
Hulu Kelang state assemblyman Saari Sungib and Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM) secretary Datuk Sieh Kok Chi gave away the prizes to the winners.
Sieh complimented the UKRC for organising the event as it encouraged young boys to be active in sports.
“In this case, the UKRC are concentrating on football. In fact, I was pleased as they have a group of volunteers who serve the community. If more organisations can emulate the UKRC, then we will not be short of young talents,” Sieh said.
This year’s edition in June will be the 4th edition and probably the last depend ing on the MB’s decision tomorrow.
This September 15-16, UKRC will host the 12th edition of Veterans International Soccer Nines, also on this patch of green. Teams from Hong Kong, Brunei, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand and Australia are regular annual participants. Would this tournament too see its last edition this year?

WILL YOU TOO?
