p/s:Leave your messages, comments below, and i`ll sent it to Scott.(Bm or English, Both ok!)


  1. Thanks Scott!!!!!
    Terima kaseh!
    Can`t wait to see you in Sabah bench!

  2. Scott beberapa bulan ini kau selalu buat tournement bola sepak bawah 12, bawah 18 dan vateran.

    apa kata lepas nie ko buat tournement untuk orang kurang upaya (OKU) footballer.

    di sabah nie ramai OKU mau main tapi tidak diberi peluang kerana keadaan fizikal yang membuatkan pasukan bola sepak tidak mau ambil durang.

    saya harap ko dapat buat team bola sepak sabah untuk OKU. Di semenanjung KL, Selangor, Melaka dan Pahang ada pasukan bola sepak.

    Saya rasa Sabah ada peluang untuk
    menjuarai pertandingan di semenanjung atau di sabah sendiri.

    saya harap ko dapat tulung kami yang oku lah ah....

    Terima kasih!!!!
