Another fantastic opportunity for the Phnom Penh Crown Academy youngsters to perform on an Asian-wide stage and to gain the experience and exposure that will make them better players for the future. Crown open their ACT matches in China against Guangdong FA on Saturday 17 May. Former England and Liverpool star Steve McMahon was on hand to join the launch with representatives from each team including Crown's Ly Heang, their general secretary.
