It’s the transfer window but Singapore Premier League clubs aren’t the only ones that are shopping. We’ve done some wheeling and dealing of our own and we’ve snapped up a great addition to the squad.
We are pleased to announce that Singapore U-22 international and Young Lions utility player Jared Gallagher has joined the SoccerKakis writing team. When the opportunity arose to get Jared onboard, Jack and myself did not have to think twice. At SoccerKakis, we have always valued unique perspectives and untold narratives. Thus, having an active professional sharing his opinions and views on a routine basis was something we were not going to miss out on.
Jared is no stranger to writing after all. The nineteen-year-old blogs about his experiences playing in Singapore and Hong Kong and how he juggles football and his National Service duties.
Naturally, many of you would have multiple questions in mind.
What was Jared doing in Hong Kong? How was he selected for the Young Lions team? What are his future plans? These are questions that we will answer sooner than you think. We will release an article tomorrow, featuring Jared’s backstory and it is quite an interesting tale indeed.
But we will answer an important question: what topics will Jared cover while with us?
As you know, Jack covers more European-based football, whilst I cover more Asian-based (primarily Singaporean-related) football. So where does Jared fit? Besides offering the unique perspective of being a professional footballer, especially one who did not come through the traditional NFA setup, Jared would also be offering insights on football both in Singapore and Hong Kong – carving out his own niche area.
Thankfully, you won’t have to wait long for Jared’s first article so stay tuned!

Tatsuma Yoshida resigned, and his departure means that Singapore is now missing a national team head coach in addition to a permanent technical director. If the local football fraternity isn’t concerned, it better be. For one, if we really want to transform the dream of reaching the 2034 World Cup into reality, we need competent […]
When Amy Recha announced his departure from Geylang International last season, many were curious about where the “Fox in the Box” would land. After all, Amy had a stellar 2021 season.
