The starting line-up with Morng our coach and Henrik who had come along to support.

The Goodwill football team have just finished competing in their first tournament (held by M’lop Tapang). There were 11 teams (each of 8 players, plus substitutes) taking part from organizations all around Sihanoukville. Players had to  under 14 years of age and matches lasted 20 minutes.

Getting ready to start.

Loads of people turned out to watch and combined with the noise of the commentary over the microphones their cheering made for a great atmosphere. Our players really got to feel like they were part of something important.

Considering it was their first time playing in front of a large crowd (so nerves were kicking in) the team did really well, drawing their first match 0-0, loosing their second 2-1, drawing their third 0-0 and winning their last 2-0. While they didn’t get enough points to qualify to the finals the team came away feeling they had done themselves and the center proud. It was a great few days!
