After the event

I'm not sure if Sun Sopanha is worshipping at the feet of unbeaten coach David Booth
The next set of pictures are taken after the final whistle and before, during and after the presentation of the Metfone C-League Championship trophy to the Phnom Penh Crown team, alongwith their medals and cheque for $15,000. The presentations to individuals and the team in the first three placings took place on a stage at the center of the pitch and the VIP guests included the Minister of Sport, the city governor and the president of the football federation. The young boys you see in some of the pictures were allowed onto the pitch by the military police and as the cup was presented they all jumped up onto the stage, which should not have been allowed to happen. This was the players' moment, not the young boys, who should've been celebrating on the terraces with the other fans.
