Crown line-up ready for the handshakes
A few more pictures from yesterday's feast of football, both at the Army Stadium where the two U-14 Crown teams carried off both the Barclays Capital ISF trophies on offer and at the Olympic Stadium, where the first-team came out on top against Western Uni. A good day at the office you could say. Kao Kiry took charge of the Academy team in the absence of Bouy Dary who is in New Zealand with his Academy captain Phoeun Sopheak for a week. They are both at the Asia Pacific Football Academy, Crown's partners, where Sopheak is undergoing a week's development program with boys from Mexico and Argentina as well as training with the main APFA Academy squad every afternoon.
