Singapore Cricket Club

Regular features at the HKFC Citi Soccer Sevens, Singapore Cricket Club return once more looking to improve on a 2015 showing that yielded no wins from four games.

The Cosmoleague team endured a disappointing group stage last year as they suffered successive 3-0 defeats to 2012 champions Newcastle United and 2013 winners Leicester City before losing 2-0 to BC Rangers to finish bottom of Group A without registering a goal.

The amateur side, though, were unlucky in the Plate quarter-finals when they lost 3-2 on penalties to hosts Hong Kong Football Club following a 2-2 draw.

Prior to last year’s tournament, Singapore Cricket Club had managed to reach the Plate semi-finals for three consecutive years and enjoyed a Plate runner-up in the 2011 edition, when they lost on penalties in the final to HKFC Captain’s Select.

A strong performance in the 2013 edition saw them record a 1-1 group stage draw with eventual Cup semi-finalists Sunderland and a victory over Hong Kong’s Yau Yee League Select as they finished third in their group.

But after beating Hong Kong Football Club in the Plate quarter-finals, they were eventually eliminated by Kowloon Cricket Club in the semi-finals.
