Keo Sokngorn will be holding the Boeung Ket scarf for the coming seasonI'm scratching my head over one of the two new teams to join the Metfone C-League in 2012. They are called Boeung Ket and will be managed by former Phnom Penh Crown manager Be Makara for the upcoming new season, with Prak Vuthy as coach. My understanding is that they are backed by the owners of the huge rubber plantation and processing plant north of Kompong Cham city, that operates under the Long Sreng International company name. However, last season, Crown played a team by the name of Neak Khiev, or Blue Dragons, that also originated from the same company - so I presume they've merely changed their name. The word on the grapevine is that the rubber baron behind the company has deep pockets and might explain how they've managed to persuade players like Keo Sokngorn, Touch Pancharong and Ly Ravy to join the C-League newcomers. I'm sure they'll be making other new signings before the season begins, with returnees from Thailand high on their agenda. Sokngorn and Ravy both spent last season in the Thai 2nd Division, with Samut Sakhon and North Bangkok respectively. Their facebook page calls them the Boeung Ket Rubber Field FC team, a rather unfortunate mouthful for anyone. Western United were the team to come out on top of the Division 1A play-off and gain promotion to the C-League, with Boeung Ket getting the 2nd spot as runners-up. Missing out were Asia Europe University and Oddar Meanchey.
