Robbert Kemperman of the Netherlands is among the six foreign players who will represent Universiti Kuala Lumpur (UniKL) in the Malaysian Hockey League (MHL), which starts with the knockout competition on Jan 3.

Dutchmen Valentine Verga and Martijn Havenga, along with Irish goalkeeper David Harte, Australia’s Kieran Govers and Tim Deavin make up UniKL’s foreign signings.

The Dutch players have received their non-objection certificates from their national association to play in the MHL.

Coach Arul Selvaraj said: “All six foreign players received the necessary clearance, but they will only join us after the P. Alagendra Trophy.”

UniKL have parted ways with five players for the new season, one being S. Selvarajoo and the other, current international Joel Samuel Van Huizen.
