Por Kai Yann, 15 (2007-present)

The likeable, quiet personality who has a natural floorball sense. Someone who never seems to break sweat, on or off the court. Appears to drift all over then be found in the right place at the right time. Lacks aggression though his size belies his body strength. Will not topple over, but instead let the ball bet taken off him.

He is a player Coach Jason loves to tease mainly because he just shrugs his shoulders, smiles and takes it all in his stride.

He played in Contact 3v3 Challenge, Penang League and Youthwave.

Verdict: A year that started so well and promised so much ended up in pretty much nothing. Studies and a very poor immune system combined halted his mid-year progress. Then some allowance was given him, as it was Exam Year, but still no sight was seen of him after his exams. Some words said about him have been less than kind but maybe he has deserved it.

Play of the year: Scoring two goals in the Penang League campaign.

Prediction for next season: There are two roads he could take; one to return and let his tremendous potential become something more than just potential, another to turn away and be seen less and less until he completely disappears. Another year that will echo this one: displays that are promising but turn out to be empty as the year wears on.
