MANILA, Philippines – Kaya FC head coach Adam Reekie tendered his resignation after steering the team to the United Football League top spot during his 6-month tenure, the club's website announced on Tuesday, March 31.
Reekie has been calling the shots for Kaya since September of 2014 and has only been at the helm of the club for 7 league games since the start of the UFL first division last January.

The team expressed its gratitude to the coach despite his short stay with one of the most followed clubs in the local premier football competition.
