Weaver the toast of new champions
New S.League champs manager already looking for bigger and better things next year
After five long years, Warriors FC are back at the summit of Singapore football.
The most-successful club in the country were crowned champions of the Great Eastern-YEO’s S.League for a ninth time last night after they squeezed out a 1-0 win over Albirex Niigata at the Choa Chu Kang Stadium.
That result, coupled with Brunei DPMM’s 2-1 loss to Tampines Rovers in the Jalan Besar Stadium, saw the Warriors top the table by three points on the final day of the season.
Hafiz Rahim’s 48th-minute header handed the Warriors victory in front of their own fans and coach Alex Weaver is already looking to bigger and better things next year.
While content with helping Warriors reclaim their place as Singapore’s No. 1 club, the Englishman said: “It doesn’t end now though. Next week I’ll get back into the office and we’ll start planning for next season, because we have continental football to think about.”
