The spoils of war

The Academy boys enjoying the moment
And now for some pictures taken after the final whistle of the First State Gold Investment Cup final between PPCFC2, the 2-1 winners, and PPCFC1 and the presentation of the two cups and medals to all players from the six teams that took part. The guests of honour included Ken Shellito, the Academy ambassador and former Chelsea manager who came over specially from Malaysia, where he lives and works with the AFC. Ken took time out on Saturday morning to hold a coaching clinic for future youth coaches as PPCFC is set to expand its number of coaches. He was also involved in the initial selection process for the final 22 Academy youngsters, so he was as proud as punch to see how much they've developed since joining the PPCFC Academy with the help and support of their coaches, Bouy Dary and Kao Kiry.
There's no distinction as both the winners and runners-up celebrate together
As the boys celebrate, that's 1st team coach Socheat waving in the background, trying to get in on the act!
