My old Phnom Penh Post pal Nick Sells paid a visit to the Phnom Penh Crown training ground this afternoon to do the honours and snap away merrily as we arranged a player's photo call before the start of this afternoon's friendly against the Navy. All the players were there excluding Sani Saidu who is in Malaysia after his contract with the club came to an end. Nick did individual portrait head and shoulders shots first, before getting the players out into the sun for more individual pictures and finally a team photo, without and then with the coaching team. A couple of scallywags had the wrong socks on and the variety of rainbow colours of playing boots these days added a splash of colour to the photos. I took a couple of photos as well, and above is my team photo without the coaching team. Below are the 7 Crown players, getting instructions from coach Bojan Hodak, who will join up with the Cambodian national team for a week's training from Monday morning. The national squad are together for a month playing a series of practice matches though Crown are only allowing their players to join the squad for a week of that because of the importance of the club's own pre-season programme.
