On a remarkable run of only two losses in their last 19 matches in all competitions, Balestier Khalsa have surprised many this season with their strong showing.
Key to their excellent campaign so far is midfielder Park Kang Jin, who has pulled all the strings in his playmaking role for the Tigers.
The Korean has made himself a vital cog in the engine park for Darren Stewart's side and has even found the back of the net on a constant basis in September.
The 25-year-old bagged the winner against Albirex Niigata in the League Cup semi-finals as they won 1-0 to proceed to the final, where he struck again in a 4-0 rout of Brunei DPMM to help Balestier to their first major piece of silverware.
Named the Most Valuable Player of the tournament as well, Park continued his fine form by equalising in an eventual 2-1 loss to Woodlands Wellington in the league subsequently. The playmaker then put in yet another solid display as they held league leaders Tampines Rovers to a credible 0-0 draw.
Park's eye for the killer pass and his creativity has been a delight to watch this season and with his goalscoring instincts seemingly getting fine-tuned, on the basis on his September strikes, he is well worthy of winning the Player of the Month award.
