Weaver No Longer Warrior Coach

Warriors coach Alex Weaver has left the club he has announced. Despite winning the SLeague last season, for the first time since the club was rebranded from SAFFC, Warriors have struggled for consistency this campaign and defensive slips have seen them concede 40 goals in their 22 SLeague games thus far. Indeed even though they have been there or there abouts most of the season they have shown a negative goal difference which has left them vulnerable to their nearest rivals.

They are currently 5th in the 10 team table with 10 wins and 9 defeats so far but one shining light this season has been the form of national team striker Fazrul Nawaz who has scored 15 SLeague goals so far, Unfortunately the one time Gombak United striker's consistency has not been matched by his team mates behind him with string of heavy losses putting the breaks on a sustained title assault.

11 2 1 8 14-23

Weaver is replaced by Karim Bencherifa for the final few games of the season. The Moroccan is a familiar face in Singapore having worked with Woodlands Wellington and Tanjung Pagar in the past. Neither side of course is in SLeague these days!
