Juffry will jump at Cebagoo offer

Daily Express

Kota Kinabalu: Striker Juffry Omopor is hoping to lead the attack for Cebagoo FC in the FAM League next season. The Nabawan-born player who was released by the Sabah Football Association recently told Express Sports that he is more than happy to consider any offer that may come his way from the management of Cebagoo FC.

 The player was invited by the Sepangar based club side to play in a friendly against Papar selection at the Yayasan football field on Monday where he netted a goal in their 3-0 win. He said Cebagoo FC are a very tight and great club side and he would dearly love to join the team and with them he believes he stands a very good chance to have more playing time to prove himself.

 Despite being the fans' favourite this season, Juffry was seldom featured in the State first team. He was often only utilised as an occasional substitute and scored a goal in the FA Cup first round tie against Felda United. "The past two seasons with the senior team was a good experience and I appreciated that but unfortunately I couldn't get the chance to prove myself as I was hardly used by the coaches and I would love to show the fans that I can deliver if given a chance."

 He also said even if there is an offer from a Peninsula side, he still preferred to play for a Sabahan team. "My goal is to help Sabah even if it is playing for a club side, it doesn't matter to me as long as they have trust in me and I would give my hundred percent on the pitch." Meanwhile, a trial was set up by Cebagoo FC last weekend to select players under the age of 21 at the Yayasan football field and according to coach Razali Zinin, the response was very good.

 "Many had turned up and six were shortlisted and the final decision will only be decided after we completed more trials." He said the door is still open for other junior players who want to play for the side as they are looking for 10 Under-21 players to fill up the quota. The club coached byRazali Zinin and assisted by Jelius Ating this season was unlucky despite a promising start as they were hampered by suspensions and injuries to key players throughout their campaign.

 They ended the season with four wins, six draws and 10 losses from 20 matches played to finish in seventh place out of 11 teams with 18 points.
