At last night's celebration awards ceremony at Bottoms Up club, Phnom Penh Crown head coach Sam Schweingruber handed out a series of awards to his Championship-winning team. These included the following: Without doubt we have the best goal celebrations of any team in the Metfone C-League. Whether it's George Bisan's amazing double somersault, Shane Booysen's somersault and groovy dance routine or Odion Obadin's knee-sliding with pure joy, we all enjoy our goal celebrations. So it was very fitting that we recognised that with framed pictures of their routines for the three goalscorers. Let's hope for even more enjoyable goal celebrations next season.
Goalscoring is the key to any teams' success and PPCFC are fortunate to have two fantastic players who have both enjoyed a great season in front of goal. With 24 goals each, Shane Booysen and George Bisan were joint Golden Boot award winners at our Bottoms Up celebration. Fabulous work from these two good friends and housemates.
One of the most precious awards for professional players is the Most Valuable Player award, selected by their own teammates, and the landslide winner this season was our South African ball wizard, Shane Booysen. Well done Shane for a memorable season in every way.
Shane Booysen also collected the award for the Best Goal of the Season against AEU, as well as Most Yellow Cards, an honour he shared with Bin Thierry, who also won the Best Set Piece award. Keo Sokpheng received the Fans Choice as the season's Most Valuable Player, voted by the fans on Facebook. Most Improved Player went to Leng Makara, In Sodavid carried off the Young Player, Most Assists went tp Keo Sokpheng and George Bisan, Best Tackle to club captain Kok Boris and Best Assist to Keo Sokpheng for his weaving run past 7 players against National Police.
