Selangor Floorball League 2011/2012: Matchweek 1 Preview

After 7 months of break, the new season of Selangor Floorball League 2011/2012 begins. Clubs have been preparing during the pre-season through friendlies and tours and the preparation for the League is said to be overwhelming and fruitful for all clubs. With the new installation of the SFL Super Cup and Premier Cup at stake for qualifications, all clubs will surely be challenging not only for the SFL title, but also for a Cup win.

Match 1: Subang Rascals v. KLIUC Hornets (4pm-6pm)

Last season's runners-up will begin their campaign against KLIUC Hornets, who will be seeking a top 4 finish this season. Rascals have always been a tougher draw for Hornets as the experience of the Rascals squad is plentiful. Hornets will have to rely on their goalkeeper, Azmill Hadzim to keep the scoreline closer to challenge the fast-paced Subang Rascals players.

Subang Rascals will most probably be starting their new signing, Apek Azahari, who signed from Bangi Rusty Blade during the transfer window, and he will be the man who Rascals will be relying on between the two posts after their no.1 goalkeeper, Susanne Olovsson is still injured.

Players to Watch (Subang Rascals): Sjaiful Anuar, Dennis Thulin, Snake, Henrik Nieminen
Players to Watch (KLIUC Hornets): Muizzudin, Taqiuddin, Azmill Hadzim

Prediction: An easy win for Subang Rascals.

Match 2: Joker Prodigy FC v. Gang Bintang (8pm-10pm)

Reigning champions, Gang Bintang will begin their title defending campaign against a new SFL club, Joker Prodigy FC, formed by former players of Bangi Rusty Blade. Gang Bintang has been well-known for their offensive plays and comeback wins last season, is hoping to start off the season in style.

With several influential players like Khalid, Jethro and Rizal, it is without a doubt the Champions will be one of the favourites to winning the title this season.

Joker Prodigy FC, on the other hand, has been rather mysterious in their club's preparation for the League as they only made their debut in pre-season friendly last month against KLIUC Griffin. Led by Ery, it is expected that Joker Prodigy FC might be in for a mid-table finish this season.

Players to Watch (Joker Prodigiy FC): Ery, Naqi
Players to Watch (Gang Bintang): Jethro, Khalid, Rizal, Anwar, Gafur

Prediction: A tough test for Joker Prodigy FC as critics think it will be a comfortable win for the defending Champions.

Match 3: GMI Black Wings v. KLIUC Griffin

The 3rd match of Matchweek 1 sees newly-established GMI Black Wings face last season's bottom-placed KLIUC Griffin. A classic David-Goliath match as experience plays a big part in this match.

GMI Black Wings is a feeder club of GMI White Knights and it is formed with new players who have never been on a competitive floorball match before. They are looking into making a promising start to the season and finish the season at a respective position.

KLIUC Griffin, on the other hand, will be shrugging off their disappointing campaign last season and looking into improving the squad for the coming season. With 3 new experienced signings in the squad, it is without a doubt that KLIUC Griffin will be challenging for a top-half table finish this season. Media prediction suggests that KLIUC Griffin might have the chance to make it to the Premier Cup. Banking on the leadership of Ahmad Naufal and in-form goalkeeper, Adi Nugraha, we will have to see if KLIUC Griffin has what it takes to dent their competitors' chances in the league.

Players to Watch (GMI Black Wings): Azizul
Players to Watch (KLIUC Griffin): Adi, Naufal, Medi

Prediction: A possible nail-biter but KLIUC Griffin will see off their first win in the league since 2009.

Match 4: Bangi Rusty Blade v. GMI White Knights

The final match of matchweek 1 sees last season's 3rd-placed Bangi Rusty Blade face GMI White Knights. Bangi Rusty Blade is the only club who has been busy in the transfer window with at least 6 signings for the coming season. Losing their influential defender, Jun Wooi, is a major blow to their squad.

New signings like Joo Minn, Kendrick and Andrian will definitely boost the squad as they bid for the title this season to match the likes of Gang Bintang and Subang Rascals. Complacency may be the key issue to some of their disappointments last season, but critics believe this season will be an exciting year for them.

GMI White Knights has wow-ed many spectators and players last season with their commitment and passion for the sport. Despite being the new club last season, they finished remarkably well and have given several teams a hard time in some matches. With the likes of Shahir, Amai, and Zaiff, GMI White Knights will be hoping to start off their campaign by a surprise win.

Players to Watch (Bangi Rusty Blade): Hafidz, Joo Minn, Andrian
Players to Watch (GMI White Knights): Zaiff, Shahir, Amai, Bard

Prediction: A close encounter but Bangi Rusty Blade will see off a win.
