Familiar Faces Contest Singapore Cup

SAFFC have had a barren couple of years after so long dominating Singapore football but now they have the scent of glory in their nostrils. Their 1-0 win away to Gombak United meant they reached the Singapore Cup Final for the first time since 2008 when they defeated Woodlands Wellington in the Final. Mislav Karoglan netted the decisive winner 11 minutes before the end from the spot.

Their 2-0 aggregate win sets up a clash with Tampines Rovers, the first all Singapore final since SAFFC's last success. The Stags were 2-0 up against Loyola Meralco Sparks from the Philippines but were forced to wait till the end before assuring themselves of a spot in the final. Two goals from Aleksander Duric and one from Imran Sahib made it 3-0 on the night.

SAFFC have won the trophy four times (1997, 1999, 2007, 2008) while Tampines have lifted it three times (2002, 2004, 2006).

The last three finals

2011 Home United v Albirex Niigata 1-0
2010 Bangkok Glass v Tampines Rovers 1-0
2009 Geylang United v Bangkok Glass 1-0

Does that mean SAFFC Daniel Bennet been with them forever while Tampines Rovers Noh Alam Shah has been round the world and back this one?
