Let Ben Davis defer NS! Support our local athlete!!!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

Ben Davis is the first Singaporean to sign a professional contract with a top-tier English club. As fellow Singaporeans, we must support our local talents to push harder, not only for themselves, but also for the country. Now that Ben Davis has been given the opportunity to play in the EPL and compete on the World stage, we must not let bureaucratic measures weigh him down. While it is understandable that this may open the inevitable floodgate on deferment matters, we should not take the easy way out by providing a blanket ruling. Surely there are ways we can improve this system that can ensure a fair and equitable measure for deferment, whilst minimising any potential abuse.

Ben Davis is only asking for deferment, not asking to skip his NS. Surely a fair deal can be brokered for the deferment. Singapore can only achieve the highest level of sporting excellence through the support of the government and its people. Let's make Singapore another Joseph Schooling.
