Goalkeeper coach Lee Bee Seng has left his post at the Football Association of Singapore (FAS) for a chance to work at S.League club Warriors FC.

Lee has been involved in the national set-up since 2000, grooming the likes of Singapore internationals Hassan Sunny and Izwan Mahbud.

The former Singapore international expressed his gratitude to FAS for the opportunity to help develop football talents.

“As an ex-national player, football has always had a special place in my heart,” Lee said in a media statement.

"When I was appointed to the national set-up in January 2000, it was a marriage of my passion and my work – indeed, as the saying goes ‘choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life’.

“Over the past 16 years with FAS, I have groomed several national team goalkeepers and I am proud that my efforts had borne fruit, as several of them put up strong performances for the matches they were fielded in.

I look forward to furthering my contributions towards Singapore’s football scene at Warriors.

“Moving forward, I will be coaching both younger and first-team goalkeepers at the club level and helping them to maximise their potential. I look forward to furthering my contributions towards Singapore’s football scene at Warriors.”

FAS general secretary Winston Lee thanked the goalkeeper coach for his contribution to Singapore football and believed Lee would continue to do so.

“Bee Seng has contributed significantly to Singapore goalkeeping for the past 16 years, playing a pivotal role in the development of Singapore’s top goalkeepers such as Lionel Lewis, Hassan Sunny and Izwan Mahbud,” he said.

“Bee Seng's skill and experience will surely be an asset to Warriors FC. We would like to thank him for his commitment and contributions to Singapore football and we wish him all the best in his future endeavours.”
