WHO knows, behind the victory of University of Muhammadiyah Malang U-11 Football School Team (SSB UMM), there is a female figure who has a very important role. She is Alea Yoi Salwa. The UMB SSB Team striker delivered his team as the second winner of biennial event of UMM 2018 Rector Cup U-11 Football Competition. Alea contributed 2 goals for the UMB SSB victory. The achievement also confirmed the two teams from SSB UMM as the general champion.
The blood of football is indeed flowing in the tiny girl's body in this second grade of Ngadirejo 1 Elementary School student. Indeed, her father, Dwi Cahyono, is a SSB UMM soccer coach who trained Alea directly. While her brother, Jasmine Sefia Waini Cahyono was included in the composition of the Indonesian women's national U-15 and U-16 team. Jasmin, in the early 2017, represented Indonesia in the Asean Football Federation (AFF) competition in Laos in 2017 and 2018 in Palembang and the recent Asian Football Confederation (AFC) event in Kyrgyzstan.
Because often accompanying her brother to play football, Alea was finally interested in playing soccer. The father admitted, it was through his cold hands that made them have the spirit to play football. "In the field, I always teach them how to play football properly. Completed from the field, I always evaluate the mistakes. Alhamdulillah, the results have been seen," said Dwi Cahyono proudly. He hopes Alea can follow her brother to join Indonesian national team.

This is a manifestation of UMM's commitment to fully support football sports, as well as its nurseries.

He wanted, from this competition he wanted there will be born another Alea and Jasmin who were prepared to become reliable players in the national and international arena.
