Patrick Ang retire

Patrick Ang who has been with Geylang United for nearly 28 years has announced his retirement from football.

The veteran, who in his time had led Geylang International (Geylang United former name) to great height in the the now defunct Singapore Premier League, noted it was time for a change.

Ang's departure followed closely the exit of Robert Lim and former international Seak Poh Leong from the club.

Together the tiro had seem the Bedok club conquered all in Singapore in the SPL era with 6 League titles in 6 years as well as 3 President Cup.

Before that, Geylang had also won 3 league titles in the National Football league era as well as 2 President Cup.

In the S-league era, they have 2 league titles and 1 Singapore Cup as well as 2 FA Cup (1 of them by the Prime League team)

This meant Geylang United is still Singapore most successful team in term of League titles with 11  while SAFFC is struck on 10.

Mr Leong Kok Fann will be taking over Patrick Ang as Geylang United chairman.
