Perak The Bos Gaurus (Malay: Kelab Bola Sepak Perak The Bos Gaurus) or The Bos Gaurus for short is a football club club that formed on 18 April 1951.[1] Although a formal association was only formed in 1951, Perak The Bos Gaurus actually had a football team since 1921,[2] which participated in the Malaya Cup (later HMS Malaya Cup, known today as the Malaysia Cup). They were also one of the founding members of the Malayan Football Association (the predecessor of the modern Football Association of Malaysia) which happened in 1926. The team was known as Perak FA from the establishment before the the privatisation initiative on the league level took place where the management formed a club under it as Perak Football Club or Perak FC for short.[3] Later on, they changed it again to fit the team vision by changing it to current name Perak The Bos Gaurus.[4]

They are the third most successful team in the Malaysia Cup competition with 7 wins and 11-second-place finishes. They won the last of their 7 titles in 2000 and were runners-up in the 2007 edition. In 2003, Perak became the first team in 13 years to achieve back-to-back league titles in Malaysian football.

Perak is the only team in Malaysia that has never been demoted to a lower division since the professional league was introduced in 1989. Perak calls the 42,500-seat Perak Stadium as its home ground, although it has played some matches at the 15,000-seat Lumut Stadium (inside the Royal Malaysian Navy (TLDM) base in Lumut, Perak) whenever Perak Stadium has not been not available. Perak's home ground is also sometimes referred to by its nickname, Fair Park as Perak Stadium is located near Fair Park in Ipoh where the team's office is situated.

Perak's nickname is Seladang which is the Malay name for Gaur. A favourite tagline of its supporters is Kejor Yeop Kejor, which roughly translates to "Chase It, Brother, Chase". The tagline was adopted by the team after the state government used it as their tagline for the 1996 Sukma Games. In 2007, Perak introduced a team song entitled, 'Skor Yeop Skor'.

On 11 January 2014, Menteri Besar Perak, Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir has launch a new logo, Tagline "Kejor Yeop Skor" and a new nickname for Perak that is "The Bos Gaurus" which is a species of Indian Bison.

The main rivals of Perak are Selangor FA, Kedah FA and Penang FA.

History[edit]

Perak finished the 2004 season of the Super League Malaysia in second place, behind Kedah FA. Perak, having played well all season, had been the league leaders and favourites going into the final two matches, but a 2–2 draw with Terengganu FA in their penultimate match enabled Kedah FA to pip them to the title. At the end of the season, team management announced that it would not retain several senior players who were originally contracted until October 2007 due to financial constraints.[5]

Perak started the 2008 season by losing several key players, including midfielder Yusri Che Lah, Abdoulaye Traoré, Vedran Kukoc and top scorer Keita Mandjou. They did, however, manage to secure the services of national player Mohammad Hardi Jaafar from the now-defunct Melaka TMFC. On 9 November, they announced the arrivals of two Chilean players, Mario Berrios and Jorge Munoz. It emerged at the end of the season that the team were facing financial difficulties, resulting in an exodus of a majority of their players.[6] The team was also unable to retain the services of their foreign players due to a new ruling introduced by the Football Association of Malaysia.[7]

For the 2010 season, Yang Mulia Raja Azlan Shah Raja So'ib was announced as the new Perak's team coach, replacing outgoing Dato' M. Karathu.[8] Fielding a youthful squad yet again, Perak endured a difficult 2010 season, finishing eleventh with 30 points from 26 matches. Once again, they were failed to make it from the group stage of the Malaysia Cup and were eliminated from the Malaysia FA Cup in the second round.

On 25 October 2010, Tuan Haji Norizan Bakar was appointed the new coach.[9] Once again, Perak will be using with a youthful team for the 2011 season, with nearly 70 percent of the squad's players being between the ages of 17 and 25, but also featuring experienced former internationals such as Akmal Rizal Ahmad Rakhli, Mohd Nasril Mat Nourdin, Chan Wing Hoong and Shahrulnizam Mustapa.[10]

On 19 July 2012, it was announced that Jang Jung will take over his former team Perak's head coach position from Norizan Bakar on an interim basis until the end of the 2012 Malaysia Cup campaign.[3] His spell with Perak was a disappointing one, recording only one win, while suffering three draws and two defeats in six Malaysia Cup group stage matches, failing to qualify to the quarter-finals. His contract was not renewed after the Malaysia Cup exit.

On 15 October 2012, Mohd Azraai Khor Abdullah was announced as Perak's new team coach.

For the 2014 season, Abu Bakar Fadzim was announced as the new Perak's team coach, replacing Mohd Azraai Khor Abdullah & 2015 season, Dato' M. Karathu was announced new Head Coach.[11]

Crest and colours[edit]

Crest[edit]

Perak The Bos Gaurus has historically utilised one primary crest. The first, adopted when the club was founded, was the image of a Malayan Tiger, where it is famous in Malaya and remained for more than half-century. In 2015, in effort to modernise the club, a new crest was introduced to replace the old crest as the club main crest. The club replaced the old crest with new logo and adopted the image Seladang which is more synonym with the Perak football team.[15] After being criticized for the lack of quality for the logo, Perak The Bos Gaurus launched a new version of the logo chosen from the logo competition held by the team for 2016 season onwards.[16]

Colours[edit]

Perak The Bos Gaurus have always worn yellow with a bit of black or white colour shirts as their home kit as it is an iconic colour for the club.

Perak The Bos Gaurus's away colours are usually white and black or various combination colours of white, yellow and black as it represent the colour of Perak's Flag.

Future planning[edit]

Regarding to Football Association of Malaysia's planning to privatising Malaysia Super League, Malaysia Premier League and Malaysia FAM League in accordance to the Asian Football Confederation's standards, Perak Darul Ridzuan Football Association will be registering a subsidiary entity, "Perak Association Football Club" (Perak FA) to participating in Malaysia's football seasons starting from 2014 season.[17][18]
