Crown release 2
Phnom Penh Crown are busy behind the scenes, preparing for the new season, which will begin with the Hun Sen Cup in early January. At the moment, the playing staff are on a well-earned close season break before they return for fitness training in the middle of November and then step up a gear, with two sessions a day, from the start of December. Head coach David Booth and his coaching team have identified changes to the playing squad, despite the club lifting the Metfone C-League championship and finishing as runners-up in the AFC President's Cup last season. Two players who have been released from their contracts with the club are the experienced pairing of San Narith (pictured) and Sun Sovannrithy. Both are former national team players who joined Crown last season and played their part in the club's successful campaign, though ended it with red cards in the AFC President's Cup final in Taiwan. It looks likely they will join Naga Corp, according to reports.
