Off to China
Sam in Beihai, China this week
Phnom Penh Crown's head coach Sam Schweingruber is in China.
He headed out immediately after his team won the Cambodian League Championship on Sunday evening. He's there for four weeks on assignment with FIFA and coaching young
children and fellow coaches across the country. This week he's in Beihai in the southern
Chinese province of Guangxi. It's actually the world's fastest
growing city. He's coaching 25 coaches and 300 children in a city which
was hit by their worst Typhoon in 25 years and which killed 31 people
only last week. Here he is with some of his students. Next week he's off
to Shenyang in northeast China. Certainly he has no time to rest after a long hard
season. On his return he will need to click the gears back into action with the club expecting to take part in the Toyota Mekong Club Championship, to be played in Hanoi, Vietnam between 31 October and 2 November this year, involving the champions from 4 countries namely Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam.
