New Look Perak HA needs to put things right

A new look Perak Hockey Association swings into action after the various sub committee chairman’s were appointed at its first Executive Board meeting on Thursday.

PHA President Ahmad Sayuti served a surprise by omitting long serving Secretary M, Selvakumaran and appointing Olympic and World Cup umpire Amarjit Singh instead.

“ Changes are inevitable and while we appreciate what Selva had fine, I feel we need a breath of fresh air!” , contends Sayuti.

“ I wish to place on record our sincere appreciation and gratitude to Selva for his contributions.”

Being put into an administrative role is nothing new for Amarjit who was ousted as the MHC Umpiring Chairman last December.

“ As the saying goes, heavy is the head that wears the crown, I have a huge task ahead in administering the PHA, said Amarjit.

“ Wr need to close ranks and work as a team,”

However the surprise inclusion of K, Kanaisan as the Umpires Chairman raised eyebrows not only in Perak but elsewhere as well.

Kanaisan was fond of self appointing himself for tournaments and this practice has to stop.

Perak HA needs to sort out its role in the organisation of the Azlan Shah Cup as well as the administration of the Raja Ashman – AHF Academy which is dormant except during the Azlan Shah Cup period.

As a company registered with the Registrar of Companies, it’s role is clearly stated – education, and therefore cannot be organisers of the Azlan Shah Cup,

And Sayuti needs an audience with the Royal family to formulate a proper direction for the Academy.
