White Swans crushed Jaguars

The White Swans opened their 2011 season in emphatic fashion as they crushed Tanjong Pagar United 5-0 at the Jurong East Stadium.

In the process, they also did something they failed to do in 2010 which was claimed 3 points on their home soil.

And it was well deserved as the Jaguars were never in the game from the word go and it showcased the gap which the returning S-league club will have to progress in the months ahead to catch up.

Unfortunately, with their core of players make up of mainly Under 21 players, it is unwilling they can achieved that even by the end of the season as Jaguars head coach Terry Pathmanathan admitted frankly this game had already seem their best effort.

That was why he was still proud of them even with the outcome and he warned the club supporters they may see such scoreline again.

Shotaro Ihata had opened the White Swans with Yosuke Saito getting a brace. Keisuke Matsui and Musashi Okuyama score the other Albirex Niigata (S) goals.

Ridhuan Barudin (GK), Khairul Solyhin (Ashwin Tiwari), Arisman Arman, Delwinder Singh, Kim Jong Oh, Hyun Jong Woon, Kim Seong Kyu (C), Takaya Kawanabe, Gary Loo (Sudhershen Hariam), Abdul Rahman, Shamil Sharif (Patrick Paran)
