Arumugam Cup to celebrate greatness of legendary goalkeeper

Malaysia's very own Spiderman, the late R Arumugam, whose legendary reflexes made him an excellent national goalkeeper. This was him on his first day of training with Selangor in June 1988.

PETALING JAYA: A tournament to remember the greatness of the late legendary goalkeeper Datuk R. Arumugam is on the cards.

The Sri Nagammah temple in Klang will organise a Masters tournament called the Datuk R. Arumugam Cup, which will take place on June 6 at the Padang Datuk Arumugam in Port Klang.

The tournament’s organising chairman M. Arokiasamy said the tournament would be open only for players over 50.

“We will have 12 teams, and so far, Selangor’s veteran team have confirmed their participation. Former players like P. Maniam, K. Gunalan and A. Jayakanthan will be part of it, ” said Arokiasamy.

“We are hosting this tournament because we want to reminisce the days of Arumugam, who was formerly the temple chairman. Plus, we want people to utilise the field and know that there is an arena named after him.”

The registration deadline for the tournament is May 15. It’s a seven-a-side tournament, with teams allowed to have three substitutes.

The entrance fee is RM500. The first prize is RM3,000 while the second and third-placed teams will receive RM2,000 and RM1,000 respectively. For more information, please call Arokiasamy (016-2930059).
