Singapore Premier League 2018: 10 signings to watch out for

​Ahead of the Singapore Premier League (SPL) kickoff at the end of the month, FourFourTwo takes a look at 10 players whom we are tipping to make an impact for their new clubs this season…

Shahril Ishak (Home United)

This will be a homecoming of sorts for Shahril as the 34-year-old makes a return to the Bishan Stadium - a place he spent arguably his best footballing years from 2007 to 2010.

Having left the Protectors for Persib Bandung midway through the 2010 S.League (now SPL) season, the Singapore centurion and skipper also featured for Indonesian outfit Medan Chiefs (2011-2012), the now-defunct LionsXII (2012-2013) and Johor Darul Ta’zim II (2014-2016).

Along with Baihakki Khaizan, Shahril then came back to local shores to represent Warriors FC last year and proved he still has it, finishing the season as the top scoring local with 11 league goals, alongside Faris Ramli.

He has already continued from where he left off this year, with two goals and four assists for the Protectors in the AFC Cup thus far…  

Faritz Hameed (Home United)

Hardworking and speedy will probably be the two words that come to mind when describing Faritz, a signing from Geylang International.

The indefatigable full-back will offer Home with an extra dimension both offensively and defensively, with his ability to slot in anywhere down the right making him a valuable asset to the team.  

While not known as a goalscorer, the former LionsXII man already has two goals in four games in the AFC Cup this season, a stark contrast to his six strikes in the past nine seasons!
