Yong Chee Seng Cup

fbtoueneyPoster from Ron Leong

Date: Saturday 4th June 2016
Time: 7.30 a.m. to 2.00 p.m
Place: Stadium Merdeka

  • 8 teams
  • 9 different years

There has been this lot of MBSians who for many years with the permission of the school, gathered at the school field in MBS on Saturday afternoons just to play football. Some of them could be grandfathers by now.

It started with people like Ser Pin, Khai Yan, Johnny Woo, Mike, Tony Tan, Ron Leong and too many to mention here. It has now grown into a cult of never too old football players with students from many years.

Many of the current students who are avid football fans have tried taking on this lot. Often the alumni have to tell themselves to stop sending the ball into the juniors’ goal. It had become too embarrassing. The seniors would analyse the games towards dusk, holding workshops with the juniors and suggesting pointers in game improvement.

The idea for this tournament for a trophy named after Mr. Yong Chee Seng had been formenting for months and nothing less than the historic Merdeka Stadium was booked well in advance of the demise of Mr. Yong Chee Seng.

You are all invited for a day of fun and a tribute to Mr. Yong Chee Seng

Day 1 of Wake

Day 2 of Wake

In spite of today being a working day and it rained early morning, the chapel at the Petaling Jaya Methodist Trinity Church was filled to the brim.

Mr. Yong’s children Hon Cheong, Wai Yin and Kin Cheong extend their appreciation to MBSKL, the Alumni and all who have given their support and condolences during this bereavement.

In the eulogies, it would appear that for Mr. Yong, the Methodist Boys’ School and the Methodist Church were his pre-occupation.

He is the last of the true blue MBSKL headmasters. One who went to school there, taught there, supervised there, became the headmaster there, then retired whist on the job there. Even after retirement, his involvement with the Alumni never stopped.

Farewell, Yong Chee Seng and

Rest in Peace.

In attendance today, was the MBSSKL Parent Teachers Association.
