Comeback kings

A dishevelled looking Bayon Wanderers squad after today's game - I'm far left front row
In the last couple of months my Sundays have been spent getting completely knackered running around chasing a football under a scorching sun, instead of taking a nice leisurely moto-ride out into the countryside and discovering the delights of rural Cambodia. I must be mad! We were scheduled to be playing an inter-squad game amongst ourselves today but it turned out we were up against a young CMAC team instead. With a squad of nearly 30 players turning up, it meant numerous changes throughout the game, making it almost impossible to offer up a cohesive resistance. It showed in the first half with our opponents capitalising on our defensive frailty to lead 3-1 at the break. The second half was a different story and our pressing and fitness brought its rewards as we ran out 6-3 winners, in the game played at the Old Stadium. It was nice for Aussie Nick King to get a goal before he departs for home this week. There's a good chance I will miss next weekend's games as I have been invited to Battambang for 3 days to help celebrate the P'chum Ben (honouring their ancestors) festival with Khmer friends.
