SINGAPORE - A sixteen-year affair ended on Wednesday (July 27) as goalkeeping coach Lee Bee Seng called time on his tenure in the national set-up.

The Football Association of Singapore (FAS) announced that Lee, who joined the FAS in 2000, will sign for nine-time S-League champions Warriors FC.

A Singapore international in the 1970s, the 63-year-old said: "Over the past 16 years with FAS, I have groomed several national team goalkeepers and I am proud that my efforts had borne fruit, as several of them had put up strong performances for the matches they were fielded in.

"I look forward to furthering my contributions towards Singapore's football scene at Warriors."

Former and current national goalkeepers Lionel Lewis, Hassan Sunny and Izwan Mahbud were among the custodians who were coached by Lee.

FAS general secretary Winston Lee thanked the outgoing coach for his contribution to the organisation.

He said: "Bee Seng has contributed significantly to Singapore goalkeeping for the past sixteen years. We would like to thank him for his commitment and contributions to Singapore football, and we wish him all the best in his future endeavours."

At his new club, Lee will work with Singaporean goalkeepers Yazid Yasin, Shahrul Rayyan, Zainol Gulam and Basil Chan.
