    The Jerudong-based outfit have not been able to play league football in Singapore amid travel restrictions owed to the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequently saw the departures of their foreign representatives.

    Currently, Muhammad Azwan Ali Rahman has been entrusted the captaincy role, leading a squad with a good mix of fresh and experienced players, under the guidance of Head Coach Mohammad Helme Panjang.
