Starting July 1, the Keyano Huskies soccer team for both the men and women teams will have a new head coach. Macky Singh is coming from the soccer programs at Olds College, where he was named the ACAC Men’s Soccer Coach of the Year last year. “We are pleased to recruit a head coach who has his depth of experience,” said Jonathan Lambert, Keyano College’s director of athletics, sport and student wellness, in a statement. “His knowledge and passion for building successful student-athlete programs make him a perfect fit for the Huskies, and we are delighted to have him working with our student athletes on the field and in the classroom.
” Singh has an extensive history in soccer, including working in New Brunswick, serving as head coach for New Zealand Universities women’s national team for eight years and the head coach of the U19 Women’s National Team for the Football Association of Malaysia. Singh said in a Tuesday interview he is looking forward to continuing the success of the Keyano men’s soccer team and building the women’s soccer team to be more successful than ever.
“I’m very excited to be given the opportunity to lead the men’s and women’s teams,” he said. One of his goals as the new head coach will be to have Keyano a top choice for people to come for soccer. “I want to help build a culture within the program, a long-term plan that both programs will be successful,” he said Singh hopes to use his past experiences to help the program, as well as the players both on and off the field. He said success in the classroom is just as important as success on the field.
Along with being named the head coach for Huskies soccer, Singh will also be joining the Fort McMurray Youth Soccer Association as the new technical director. His work as technical director will allow him to work closely with coaches and players at all ages. Singh said he is excited to work with the organization. “To help grow the span of soccer in the community for all ages and gender is one of my primary goals,” he said. He hopes to use his past experiences to help develop coaches who may one day want to move up to coaching a team like the Huskies.
