Soccer in Lianhua Primary has always been a popular sports. This CCA has been around for many years (apart from 2013 to 2016) and every year we participated in the Inter School Tournament. The tournament consist of 40 plus schools in the West Zone and the tournament is highly sought after.
Soccer is a great form of exercise as there is lots of running and physical skills to be imparted. Apart from its health benefits, soccer too emphasise on the values of teamwork, discipline, motivation and sportsmanship.

I have always been fascinated by my brother, Hakeem. He is a good player and is able to control the ball well. I realised that Hakeem was good because of the long hours of training and playing soccer. Thus I inspire to become like him. I am lucky as my brother Hakeem always trains me in the afternoons.
Training with my friends in school further enhance my skills and knowledge about soccer. Our Soccer CCA teachers trains us to become good players. I love to learn from them. Not only on technique, we are also reminded on teamwork, the motivation to fight as a team and also to lose as a team.
One player I love to play with is Danish Alfian. He plays as the striker in our team. Danish is a skillful player. Playing along him gives me the confidence of winning. Football has given me so much and I will continue to strive to be a better player.

I always strives to be the best in the team. So to achieve that, I have to train hard and work hard during training. I really love the training conducted by our Soccer teachers. It consist of so many activities from ball skills and playing as a team.
I remembered playing in the tournament. I can see that the teams puts so much trust in me to score goals. I was a little nervous at first but after a few games, I began to be more confident and makes lesser mistakes.
I still remember when I made a last pass to Gahan during a game and he managed to score a goal for the team. Although we lost the game, but the teamwork, motivation to fight as a team and play for our school is very satisfying.
