It seems that the days of Yahya Atan as coach of the national women's hockey team are numbered. And most likely to take over from Yahya is his understudy - Mohd Nashin Nubli Ibrahim.

Though the Malaysian Women Hockey Association has yet to make a firm decision, as they are awaiting a joint meeting with the National Sports Council, there is every indication that Yahya will most likely be moved to handle the women's version of the 1Mas development program.

Mooted by the NSC Director General Dato Zolkples Embong, who is the Chairman of the Task Force Monitoring Committee of the 1 Mas Program, after the program was given an additional RM1 million funding, Yahya is expected to take charge of the development program, though not as extensive of the men's version, sometime next month.
