New faces in 2013
There will be two new teams in the Metfone C-League next season after their success in the Division A1 championships played in Pursat last week. Asia Europe University will replace fellow students from Western University who were relegated at the end of their first season, whilst the Senate Secretariat team, who beat AEU 1-0 in the A1 final, will take the place of Chhlam Samuth in the top flight in 2013. The students from Phnom Penh-based AEU will be chuffed after they finished third in the Division A1 play-offs last year and were pipped for a place by Western University and Boeung Ket. In this year's semi-finals of the championship, the Senate side beat Chhma Khmao Svay Rieng (aka the Preah Khan Reach U-19 team) 2-1, while AEU crashed Prek Pra 5-0. In the third place play-off, Chhma Khmao beat Prek Pra 3-0.
