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.
