New faces from Roi Et
PPCFC welcomed a delegation from Roi Et United, a Thailand League Division 2 club to RSN Stadium this evening, including experienced coach Somchart Yimsiri, who will take charge of the Crown Academy, having previously been head coach at Sisaket and with the Thai U-17 team that were 1998 AFC U-17 Champions, before many years at Roi Et. Also joining Crown as a player and seeking to make an impression over the next few weeks is 18-year-old striker Somkiat Kunmee, who was an Academy player with Muangthong United, spent a year with Leicester City's Academy before joining Roi Et, and has appeared for the Thailand U-16 and U-19 national teams. They are pictured on either side of Crown president Rithy Samnang in the group picture.
