Peteh Kids launches bus logo, Suparimau website

KUALA TERENGGANU: Let the bamboo bend from the shoot. This is the exact proverb that can be associated with the Terengganu Peteh Kids Academy which is one step further in its mission to produce more talented young players as a backbone to the state and country.

Today, the academy made history when it launched the academy bus logo as well as the registration of the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) Suparimau Charter website in an effort to support the program developed by the country's football governing body.

Peteh Kids Manager, Azimah Abd Rahman said, with the launch of the logo and the registration of the Suparimau website, it is able to inject the spirit of young players to further improve the quality of the game in the mission of producing more talented players.

"Our purpose in launching the academy bus logo and the FAM Suparimau website is to support the FAM grassroots charter to ensure that this number one sport continues to grow and improve in terms of game patterns.

"Therefore, we are asked by the Terengganu State Football Association (PBSNT) to register this academy under Suparimau FAM. This academy is the first in the state to register.

"So far, the small players who are registered with this academy are 120 people from the age of six to 16 years involving a total of 11 coaches with a training ground at Sekolah Kebangsaan Sultan Sulaiman 1.

"Our target is for development programs. So far there are players representing schools under 12 years since this academy was established in 2013," said Azimah when met after the launch in Kampung Ladang, near here.

Also present to enliven the program were TFC import player from Senegal, Babacar Diallo and three TFC II import players namely Bruno Suzuki from Japan, Argzim Redzovic (Montenegro) and Ivory Coast-born player Marcel N'Guessan.
