Important weekend ahead

The Phnom Penh Post in Khmer announces the arrival of Bojan Hodak
Above is the bones of the press release we put out about the arrival of coach Bojan Hodak and the new players in the Khmer language edition of the Phnom Penh Post. The Cambodia Daily, who rarely cover football, are sending out a journalist to do a feature on the final trials of the PPCFC Elite Football Academy that is taking place on Saturday and Sunday in Cheng Meng. Whilst on the subject of the Academy trials, being attended by 40 of the best U13 players in the country, from which 22 will be selected to join the first-ever residential football academy in Cambodia, PPC have invited two coaches from overseas to join the selection process. Former England international and Chelsea manager Ken Shellito, who is a coach and analyst for the Asian Football Confederation will be assisting as will Graham McMann, Chief Scout with the Asia Pacific Football Academy in New Zealand, PPC's partners in the Academy. He previously coached at Burnley and in the USA and New Zealand. The trials should be completed by the middle of the afternoon on Sunday and the best 22 youngsters selected for the 2 year residential course. An exciting time ahead for the club and the boys concerned.
