Hong Kong captain Farooq Saeed has defected from Pakistan Association and become the latest big-name player to join Shaheen. The 34-year-old penalty-corner specialist said he had finally succumbed to the temptation of playing for the super club after 15 seasons in the domestic league. 'This is the first time in my career that I will play for Shaheen. They have been chasing me for too long,' joked Saeed yesterday. 'I have only played for two clubs in Hong Kong, Pakistan Association and KCC. But I have decided to move. It is a big move for me.' The central defender's move is the latest in a string of players joining Shaheen. Last month Arif Ali and Mustafa Mohamed left KCC and joined Shaheen, who are intent on entering the Hong Kong record books by becoming the team with the most number of League titles. They currently share the record of 13 titles with former champion club Recreio. 'Shaheen want to win the Premier League title this season. To do that we have to beat Guangdong, who are the reigning champions. I hope I can help them achieve this target,'' said Saeed. Saeed, who captained Hong Kong at the last Asian Games in Pusan, South Korea, has targeted the 2006 Asian Games in Doha as his swansong appearance for Hong Kong. 'I hope I can play in the 2006 Asian Games before retiring. I will play for Shaheen for the next couple of seasons in the meantime,'' Saeed said. Missing their star player, Pakistan Association slumped to a 4-2 defeat at the hands of Hong Kong Football Club last Sunday in the South China Premier League. Club forwards Zaki Deta and Chris Marshall tore holes in the defence, while Ravi Dillon had a strong game at the back for Club. 'Homeless' Macau stretched their lead at the top of the standings with a 3-2 win over cellar-dwellers KCC. Macau, who have been playing all their games away this season because the Taipa Stadium is closed, top the standing as the preliminary stage moves into the second round. 'The hockey ground has been closed for several months due to construction works at the main stadium nearby which is being rebuilt for the 2005 East Asian Games,'' said Macau hockey association president Frederico Nolasco. In the other game on Sunday, SSSC beat Valley 4-2.
