Football: ITE pip Sing poly

A combined team from various campuses of the Institute of Technical Edcation (ITE) beat a Singapore Polytechnic (SP) side led by 2010 Youth Olympic Games stars Jeffrey Lightfoot and Illyas Lee 1-0 in the S R Nathan Challenge Trophy at the Jalan Besar Stadium on Wednesday.

There was a distinct S-League feel to the match, with former Woodlands Wellington coach Shasi Kumar on the ITE bench getting the better of his former Gombak United colleague Kevin Wee, who led the SP team.

Wee is currently assisting Warriors FC coach Alex Weaver, as the eight-time S-League champions look to regain their stranglehold on local football.
