SINGAPORE (29 April 2019) – With the AFF Women’s Championship coming up at the end of the year, the Singapore Women’s national team is currently in Darwin, Australia for the Arafura Games 2019.
The Games are making a return after an eight-year hiatus.
Arafura Games is an international multi-sport Games held biennially from 1991 to 2011 and was organised by the Northern Territory Government.
“It has not been long since I took over the team and the girls are still getting used to my playing style and philosophy,” said Singapore head coach Melisa Ye.
“This tournament will be beneficial in helping the girls to strengthen their teamwork. I hope that the girls will remember my philosophy: Respect all, Fear none. We may face tough opponents who are physically stronger and quicker but we have to learn to stand up against them.”
