UDDINGSTON HOCKEY CLUB FURTHER STRENGTHENS KEY PARTNERSHIPS

Over the weekend Uddingston Hockey Club welcomed a delegation from Majlis Sukan Politeknik, Malaysia, for a formal signing ceremony of a collaboration agreement between both parties.

This agreement is the culmination of the relationship that has been built up over the past three years, with the Polytechnic being formally recognised, to allow sharing of knowledge and players with a key objective of developing the relationship further in the years ahead.

Three years ago the club welcomed our first Malaysian players and since then both parties have seen the benefits of players coming to Uddingston to develop not only their hockey skills but also their English speaking skills and life skills from living in a different country.

Now that the agreement is in place we have also agreed that the club will send our Under 16 boys on a tour of Malaysia for a week in October supported by the Polytechnic. We will also starting discussions about Uddingston male and female senior players visiting Malaysia in January 2018 to develop their hockey skills and cultural understanding.

Club President Allan McGill commented, "We see this as a long-term project and investment that will improve the quality of our playing sides and give our members fantastic opportunities to learn both from Malaysian players travelling to Uddingston and our players travelling to Malaysia to gain new experiences”.

Polytechnic Director of Professional Excellence Mohamad Amin bin Hamat commented, "This is truly a fantastic opportunity for our students to learn at such a forward-thinking club as Uddingston, while also giving us the chance to see first-hand how the club runs its various programmes and develops its players across all levels".

Uddingston Hockey Club would like to thank the Polytechnic for agreeing to this collaboration agreement and look forward to seeing them again in October and developing our relationship further in the years ahead.

Uddingston Hockey Club and Malaysia Polytechnic set to Sign Collaboration Agreement

Over the past three years Uddingston Hockey club have been developing a working relationship with Majlis Sukan Politeknik, Malaysia, which will enable both parties to benefit not only from the perspective of playing hockey but also through sharing knowledge and experiences.

Over the past few seasons students from the Polytechnic have been playing for the club; returning to Malaysia both as better hockey players and as individuals. The growth they experience through learning and sharing cultural differences enables them to expand their knowledge of the European style of hockey.

This relationship will further develop in October when the Polytechnic host Uddingston Under 16 Boys for a week-long tour of Malaysia that will again strengthen our ties.

Recently we have also welcomed coaches from the Polytechnic to see first-hand how the club is run and to observe the large in-school, youth and development programmes, allowing them to take home the knowledge acquired.

Club Vice President David Goodfellow commented, "This truly is a unique relationship with endless possibilities for both parties to share knowledge and resources with it being only the start of the collaboration agreement".

Polytechnic Hockey Manager Mohamed Rafi Bin M.S. Solaiman commented, "Having our players being able to come to Scotland and play hockey is fantastic however being able to shadow and learn from the club itself is even more important to us and we really see this as being a long-term relationship".

The delegation from the Polytechnic arrives in Uddingston later this week with the formal signing of the collaboration agreement taking place at the hockey pitch at 5pm on Saturday 9th September. All members are welcome to come along, particularly as there are four home matches between 12 noon and 6pm.
