Another daft name for a football club but then I'm English and what do I know? ATM, Angkata Tentara Malaysia, are the initials of Malaysia's armed forces and ATM, not a machine that dispenses cash, is their football club.
They went into the season flush with cash signing big names including striker Marlon Alex James who was so inspirational with Kedah when they won back to back trebles a few years back. He has continued his prolific form from those days by hitting six in the first two games though surprisingly not finiding the net against Harimau Muda B in their last game.
Coached by former national team coach Sathianathan they also boast familiar names like Zaquan Adha, Hairuddin Omar and Zaquan Radzak.
