Academy visit

With the PPCFC Academy boys just before kick-off
Saturday morning was spent in the glare of the hot sun watching the Phnom Penh Crown Academy boys in action. Tim has seen the youngsters perform on a previous visit, when Fabio Cannavaro was in town strutting his stuff. Today, the boys were up against the Civil Aviation team who were at least two years older and who gave the Academy a few scares before the home team ran out 2-1 winners. Its a tough task finding quality teams to match-up against the Academy, they are simply too good for boys of their own age, 14 and under, so they have to play against older-aged players who are physically stronger, taller and more robust. It's a learning process for the Academy who have to defeat the opposition with skill and teamwork rather than brute force.

Tim couldn't fit his fat arse on the Academy bench. And his playing days are long gone...
