The 0-2 defeat at the hands of Tenaga Nasional Berhad in the Charity Shield last night will be a bitter pill to swallow for KL Hockey Club coach K. Dharmaraj.
Tenaga Nasional Berhad defeated KL Hockey Club 2-0 to win the Charity Shield of the Malaysian Hockey League at the Tun Razak Stadium tonight. A goal in each half by Mohd Amin Rahim (32nd minute) and Faiz Helmi (69th minute) gave TNB the title, but more importantly the three points to kick start their campaign in style.
Rehan Butt has played in two World Cups (2006 & 2010), two Olympics (2004 & 2008), three Asian Games (2002,2006 & 2010) as well as three Commonwealth Games (2002,2006 & 2010), earning a total of 357 international caps, scoring 149 goals in the process. And this mean machine means business as he intends to fire on all cylinders in his debut in the Malaysian Hockey League.
The Malaysian Hockey League commences today and this website will attempt to provide coverage of the matches for the benefit of hockey fans around the world. It is not easy mind you, as the MHF have opted to give us the cold turkey treatment. Despite our attempts to gain recognition, with the title sponsors on the verge of proving this website with the official status, an official of MHF put a spanner in the works at the very last moment. Though we have been blacked out from receiving info and assistance from MHF, this website aims to provide the best coverage for the fans.
The 21st edition of the Malaysian Hockey League gets underway tomorrow with the curtain raiser Charity Shield between defending league champions KL Hockey Club and defending overall champions Tenaga Nasional Berhad at the Tun Razak Stadium.
