|Phearath gets his team stretching|
Saturday afternoon was great fun as the Phnom Penh Crown Academy players and
coaches went out to the relocation village of Andong, 20kms from Phnom
Penh, to hold a mini-football festival with 220+ children, aged 6-13.
The girls outnumbered the boys and they all had great fun kicking lumps
out of each other as they moved, in a mass, across the small pitches we
set up. The unbridled joy on their faces makes these community visits an
enormous pleasure. And to see a tiny slip of a girl get knocked over
but get back on her feet, dust herself down and sprint barefoot to catch
up with the pack is what makes it so worthwhile.
|Okay, everyone kick the ball at the same time|
