Briefs: Battambang youth finals

SALT Academy celebrates the culmination of the third Battambang youth football season with four finals Sunday at VTC field in Battambang. Over the last four-and-a-half months, around 800 children - many from disadvantaged backgrounds - have played in 50 teams spread across three boys' age categories and one division for girls. Games are played across half a standard pitch with nine players on each side. The U17 final sees ASPECA Orphanage take on Jerusalem at 2.30pm in what should be an entertaining encounter after a 1-1 draw in the regular season. The Catholics Community centre underline their strength coaching football-playing youngsters with teams featuring in each of the other three finals. In the U14 final, also at 2:30pm, the Catholics come up against a tough Crossroads team in what promises to be a showdown of the two most talented in the division. The remaining boys' final pits KFC's U12 team against Catholic's U12 at 1pm. SALT, which stands for Sport and Leadership Training, have shown that success throughout the season is not just measured by the quality of the games but also in the behaviour of the players and the development of their coaches and leaders. SALT Academy has also developed girls football in Battambang. In its second season, 11 girls teams competed, culminating in the final at 1pm between Crossroads and Catholics in a repeat of last year's final.
