A total of 10 Junior players contested the 2014 TFAS Cup (Junior) at Orchid Country Club. The Swiss system was once again adopted for this tournament. The return of 3 past Junior Champions into the fold of this year’s tournament makes for a keenly-contested tournament. Several newcomers have also trained hard and made tremendous improvements in the past few months to also stake their claim for honours!! ** Note: Asyraf withdrew at the last-minute.

Here are our Junior players in action …
After 6 rounds of intense and exciting action of the Swiss system, the final standings of the 2014 TFAS Cup (Juniors) saw Azhar finishing top of the table comfortably with 16 points. Giovanni was tied with Galvin on 12 points but finished 2nd by virtue of a better goal difference. Likewise, Fadhly and Isaac was tied on 10 points with Fadhly edging out Isaac (with a better goal difference) to take the 4th and last spot for the final round of play.
The final round of play saw Galvin and Fadhly squaring off for 3rd / 4th placing and Azhar and Giovanni battling out for the right to be known as the 2014 TFAS Cup Junior Champion!! … As the final whistle blew, Azhar was crowned as the Champion after a hard-fought 1-0 win over Giovanni; while Fadhly made a mockery of the form-book by beating Galvin 2-0 to take 3rd place. Well done to all players!!
