Tanjong Pagar Pull Out From SLeague

Tanjong Pagar United have announced they will be withdrawing from the SLeague in 2015. No reason was given in the release posted on their Facebook page.

The club were founder members of the SLeague back in 1996 when they were known as Tiong Bahru before changing their name two years later. From 1997 until 2001 they never finished outside the top three, winning the Singapore Cup in 1998.

However they withdrew from the league in 2004 after back to back 10th place finishes.

They returned in 2011 but despite a healthy 6th placed finish in 2013 when they also finished runners up in the Singapore Cup have struggled to make much of an impact and finished the last campaign in 10th place.

Taking a gap year seems to be no big deal in Singapore, a league without promotion or relegation. Gombak United withdrew in 2013 due to financial problems.
