|Dordoi celebrate their latest championship success|
Their AFC President's Cup wins came in 2006 and 2007, beating Mahendra Police Club in the second final, now called Nepal Police Club and who also feature in this week's Group B. In their cup final defeats, Dordoi-Dynamo as they were known then, lost three times to their rivals Regar and once, in 2010 to Yadanarbon from Myanmar. In 2005, Crown's predecessor Hello United faced Dordoi-Dynamo and came off second-best, going down 6-1 in Nepal. In 2009 PPCFC travelled to Kyrgyzstan and lost 3-1 against Dordoi on their home turf with Lappe Lappe opening the scoring for Crown after half an hour. In the starting line-up for Crown were Tieng Tiny and Chan Chaya whilst Soeng Vanthan came on as a substitute. Some of the Crown team have faced them whilst playing for other Cambodian clubs in the President's Cup. Playing for Khemara in 2006, Kouch Sokumpheak, Tieng Tiny, Chan Chaya and Chan Dara were on the wrong end of a 3-0 defeat against Dordoi. Sokumpheak faced them again with Khemara in 2007, losing 4-0, whilst Tieng Tiny met them in 2008 with Naga, going down 2-0. That means it's about time that the Crown squad were able to celebrate a positive result against one of the very best teams at this level.
