Tajuddin: Newbies can fit in quickly

PETALING JAYA: Veteran striker Tengku Ahmad Tajuddin Tengku Abdul Jalil (pic) wants to help UniKL retain all titles won in the Malaysian Hockey League (MHL) last year.

Last year, UniKL were truly a class above as they won the Charity Shield, League and TNB Cup titles.

When the league begins from March 11-April 3. UniKL will unleash three newcomers – forward Nur Rahull Hrshikesa Tatchana Murthy, midfielder Pavandip Singh and goalkeeper Mohd Shafie Sahrom.

Tengku Ahmad is hoping for Nur Rahull and Pavandip to shine in their debut.

“They are in the national set up, so it is no surprise to see them signing for us. I hope they can bring their top-level performance into this team, ” he said.

“They have the talents, but the pressure is different when you’re playing for a side like UniKL.

“We’ll start our training at the National Hockey Stadium next week before reporting for camp under a bubble system on March 10, ” said Tengku Ahmad, who trains under coach Megat Azrafiq Megat Tarmizi.

The other teams in the league are Tenaga Nasional, Universiti Kuala Lumpur (UniKL), Terengganu, TNB Thunderbolts, UiTM, Nur Insafi, Maybank and Sabah
