Reynold Godwin Pereira remembers watching the matches at the Jalan Besar Stadium and National Stadium with his father.
A casual footballer and musician who works as a technical writer in a software company, Reynold first got to hear the name Choo Seng Quee in the mid-1970s.
Reynold, who is based in Barcelona with his family, took six years to research and write the book, based on information in the public domain and from speaking to the players and those involved in the game.
Reynold hopes his book will inspire local coaches to aspire to greater heights.
Reynold is hopeful the glory days of football will return to Singapore. For now, even hope seems an ephemeral goal.
