FORMER New Zealand women's university team coach Macky Singh is the man handpicked to chart the course for the Malaysian women's football in the immediate future. Malaysianborn Macky spent the last decade working in New Zealand where he was head coach at Avon United and high performance football coach at Performance Institute of Canterbury before taking charge of the women's university team from 2001 to 2005.
Ladies Football Association of Malaysia (LFAM) assistant secretary Damelia Ajla said Macky's immediate task was to take charge of the national Under-19 squad who reported for duty yesterday. "We are optimistic Macky's experience in preparing the New Zealand University team will be of benefit to us.
Since he was involved from A to Z in the NZU women's team culminating with a ninth placing in the World Universiade Games in Turkey last year, Macky's experience, we hope, will offer fresh optimism to the women's game in Malaysia," said Damelia. Macky counts the FISU Fairplay Cup in the Universiade Games in Turkey and the runners-up spot in the Australasian Cup among his successes.
Macky has a sports coaching degree from Christchurch College of Education and a diploma in sports psychology from New Zealand International Correspondence Schools.
