We need to adapt new environment as quickly as Possible : Santa Singh [ Midfielder, India Junior Men Hockey Team ]

09-Hockey-02 New Delhi | October | Friday | 09, 2015 ::  As the India Junior Men Hockey Team looks forward to participating in the upcoming 5th Sultan of Johor Cup in Malaysia and hold on to the Defending Champions tag, midfielder Santa Singh is confident of putting up a good show in the tournament. The Haryana-lad will play alongside Captain Harjeet Singh and Baljit Singh in the mid-field, which has a crucial role to create attacks for the Forwards as well as strengthen the defence-line.

The 19-year-old midfielder is leaving no stone unturned to give his best performance to strengthen the mid-field position. He will be seen rubbing his shoulders with the finest young talents and aim to give a tough fight to the opponents in the upcoming tournaments. The Junior team trained at Delhi for a month’s time where they worked on the different aspects of the game and which helped the team to play as unit.

 Speaking on the tournament and the challenges, Santa Singh said, “We need to adapt new environment as soon as possible because at this level even the slightest of time lag can cost you a match. We are facing world class teams like Great Britain and Australia so we need to be on our toes to put up a good performance. The last tournament showcased the intent with which the players played to win and I am certain that the team will carry on the same agility in the impending tournament. We have been training hard under Coach Harendra Singh, where we work on long passes and holding the possession, now it’s time to apply those learning on field.

The India Junior Men Hockey Team will be playing their opening match of the tournament against Pakistan on 11th October 2015 at 16.05 IST.
