As well as the brand new Phnom Penh Crown website, which we launched a couple of days ago, the Crown Facebook page now has a following of over 2,000 and generates a lot of online traffic interested in the comings and goings at everyone's favourite Cambodian football club. Obviously I would say that being Crown's press officer, but there's a definite shift, trend, call it what you will, amongst the internet-savvy Khmer online population to follow their favourite footy team whether it's Crown, Boeung Ket or Western Uni. Long may it continue.
One match played today in the Metfone C-League and Chhlam Samuth gave Kirivong a bit of a shock, beating them 4-0 at the Olympic Stadium with two goals apiece from Sunday Ayodele and on-loan (from Boeung Ket) George Bisan. As we now enter a 10-day break for Khmer New Year, the Police and Naga top the table on ten points each.
