OLD La Sallians Association of Klang (Olak-PKT) did not make an impact this season but despite that, their sponsor PKT Logistics Group Sdn Bhd has big plans for the players.

PKT CEO Datuk Michael B.Y. Tio yesterday confirmed that he has set aside RM500,000 for Olak players who want to further their studies.

“We finished third in Division Two (Group B) but turned out big winners when our sponsor agreed to foot food and lodging bills as well as fees for Olak players who want to further their studies.

“Also, PKT will sponsor a development programme for hockey players in Klang in April where Under-12 and Under-15 players will be nurtured,” said Olak team manager Joseph de Silva.

Olak won the Division One title in 1997 and did the ‘double’ in 1998 and 1999, but have been struggling since.

Meanwhile, League champions UniKL Young Guns must score at least six goals against USM Juniors in Division One of the Milo-Junior Hockey League today. Failing which, they must win outright against Overall champions SSTMI Thunderbolts in the final league match at the Taman Daya Stadium in Johor Baru on Sunday.

UniKL are unbeaten after six matches but trail Thunderbolts by six goals, and today’s clash against USM Juniors could just make their quest to retain their League title easier if they score more than six goals, which will see them needing only a draw in the last match.

In Division Two, the semi-finals will be held today to decide which two teams play in the quarter-finals for the Overall title.

Overwhelming favourites Sapura play Batu Pahat, while Malacca High School take on Politeknik PKT with the finalists advancing to the higher knockout stage.
