Wayne Yoong, 12 (2008-present)

Like his other junior counterparts in the same boat (Julian and Tristan), he's a player who enjoys running all over the opponent's defence.

While he might not be that very animated and loud during training, Wayne definitely injects his own spurt of effort and persistence while practising. Silent as he may be, he is not one to be underestimated.

Skills-wise, he is reputed to have the best ball control among the juniors and also the best trained, and rightly so.

When it comes to the physical side of floorball, Wayne might not be your best bet on strength and size (yet), but he is a natural athlete, proven by the fact that he represents his school in athletics without having much training in any other sport.

Verdict: His first year is proof enough to show that he is serious about floorball, and he has only gotten better and better since joining FFC.

Play of the year: Definitely Z'Liners-PFA Floorball Challenge. Outstanding performance there, and aided the team in scoring many goals.

Prediction for next season: Wayne is expected to stay on in FFC for many, many more seasons to come, becoming an attacking player worth watching in the future. Come next season, he will continue to actively participate in FFC, in his own strong and silent way.
