Football: Great Eastern organises coaching clinic for ST School Pocket Money Fund kids

Over 90 beneficiaries of The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund (SPMF) turned the Jalan Besar Stadium pitch into a sea of red on Friday afternoon, as part of a 80-minute-long football clinic.

The coaching session was conducted before the Great Eastern-Yeo's S-League season opener between Tampines Rovers and Home United, which doubles up as the Charity Shield match.

Organised by S-League co-title sponsor Great Eastern, coaches from the National Football Academy and ex-internationals like Malek Awab, Samad Allapitchay, Razali Saad and Syed Faruk were on hand to polish the children's football skills.

At half-time of Friday's game between Tampines and Home, Great Eastern will make a donation to the SPMF, which will go into helping children from underprivileged families.
