What was to be a six month spell with Hilderinc FC turned out to be more than an extraordinary bond between Club and Hoonki Song, who leaves for home tonight after making himself part of the Blacks’ illustrious group of foreign players who have made a lasting impact.
Ever-present since his debut towards the end of the ESPZEN Saturday League 17 season, the quiet and unassuming midfielder was a player to reckon with on the pitch with his tireless runs and ruthless but tackles with a surgeon’s with precision, ever willing to be redeployed in various positions mid-game, for the benefit of the team.

His departure comes on the back of that of the outstanding Stepan Lobov, who left three weeks ago, and will certainly leave a void in the Blacks, but they will surely take inspiration from the Korean’s farewell speech last Saturday when he expressed his faith in his fellow Hilderincs to complete the task this season and progress up to the summit soon.
While he will be missed, all at Hilderinc Football Club wish Hoonki Song all the very best in all his future endeavours!
Once a Hilderinc, always a Hilderinc!
