A much improved Rawang Badminton Club (RBC) is confident of improving on its sixth-place finish in last season’s Purple League Junior 2018 (PLJ2018) when the new season starts tomorrow.
Spirits are at an all time high in their camp as both the management and players are determined to mount a serious challenge for the crown.
Rawang BC manager Jayaseelan Anthony said: “This club is ready to give the younger players the opportunity to show off their talents besides being on an important mission to challenge for the PLJ2018 title.
“With all the talent our players possess, I truly hope they will use this opportunity to showcase their skills during the tournament.
“Some of them have been showing tremendous potential. With the success, I am convinced it will motivate them to do well in the future,” he said.
National Under-19 player Eng Sin Jou is eager to do well in the latest edition of the PLJ and is determined to help RBC to finish the season high in the standings if not the top spot itself.
Sin Jou, 18, said: “Being selected to represent RBC in the PLJ this season is a huge opportunity and an honour for me. I am determined to repay the belief the club has shown in me. I am truly motivated to do well for the team.”
Meanwhile, public relations agency Shekhinah PR has shown great faith in the club and as a form of motivation for the players, has sponsored Rawang BC to the tune of RM10,000 as financial support and to help prepare the players for the start of PLJ2018.
During a cheque presentation ceremony in Bangsar last week, Shekhinah PR chief executive officer Christopher Raj said: “We have a good relationship with various sports clubs and associations in the country and I feel it is our duty to contribute to the development of all sports in the country whenever possible.
We chose to be affiliated with Rawang BC because the club has so much potential and by looking at this season’s roster, I am convinced they will do well in the upcoming PLJ2018. I feel that this is their time to shine and contribute to the future of Malaysia badminton.”
RBC open their PLJ2018 campaign tomorrow and will be battling for the crown with eight other teams in Division 1.
