Cup competition on hold due to rainy season

SMART FOCUS and Royal Selangor Club have made it to the third round of the Football Association of Selangor (FAS) FA Cup competition.

Smart Focus, who failed to make the quarter-finals in the Super Division last season, started their campaign in the FA Cup by beating Red Giants 1-0. In the second round, Smart Focus overcame Victoria 3-1.

Royal Selangor Club, who are featuring in the Premier Division, registered an upset when they edged Super Division’s Kuala Langat District Football Association 1-0 in the first round.

Royal Selangor Club were again in their element in the second round and trounced SB-Serampunk 7-0.

Iman PJH also made it to the third round after beating PKNS Academy 5-2 on penalties. The match was decided on spot-kicks after the teams were deadlocked 1-1 after extra-time.

However, the three teams will have to wait for their next call to action as the FAS competitions committee has postponed all matches scheduled for the next two weeks.

Committee deputy chairman Datuk S. Sivasundram said the rainy season was responsible for disrupting the fixtures.

“About 60% of the scheduled matches had to be called off due to the pitch conditions. The field owners are also reluctant to allow us to use the fields. The match officials also feel that the deplorable conditions are not conducive for football matches.

“After consulting all the parties concerned, we have decided to re-schedule all the called off matches to January. We hope the weather will improve within the next few weeks,’’ said Sivasundram.
