Two x-FAM bigwigs in SDFC
Sime Darby FC may be competing in the FAM league, the third tier competition in the domestic structure but they are getting a headstart by appointing two former FA of Malaysia bigwigs to help strategise the team's future.
SDFC deputy chairman-cum-team manager is former FA of Malaysia vice-president, Tengku Ahmad Shah, known for his role as the Selangor team manager in the 90s. Chairman is Datuk Seri Mohamed Sulaiman, a former FAM treasurer. When the idea of forming SDFC took shape last year, Sime Darby did not have to look beyond the group. Tengku Ahmad Shah is chairman of Sime Darby Medical Centre in Subang, while Mohamed is a member of Sime Darby board of directors.
Charting the team's fortunes on the pitch is former Selangor tactician and head of the academy, Ismail Zakaria. They have registered quite an encouraging series of results in friendlies as they prepare for life in the M-League's third division!
