KOTA KINABALU: Sabah has been drawn together with defending champions Kelantan in the President’s Cup challenge that is expected to kick off on January 26, 2012.
The draw that was held in the national capital on Friday also saw this year’s losing semi-finalists Bukit Jalil Sports School being drawn in the same group (A) as Sabah.

Team manager Juil Nuatim when contacted was being modest about the draw.

He said it is a fair draw and that he has no complaints.

“What is more important is for us to live up to expectations and be consistent in every game. As long as we can do that, I think our chances of doing well will always be there,” said Juil.
