National hockey side set for first tournament

Cambodia’s first national women’s hockey team has been finalised ahead of their inaugural appearance at an international tournament, the 3rd Indoor Asia Cup which will be held in Bangkok from October 2-7.

Through three trials held on hard courts in Kien Svay and Phnom Penh over the past weeks, head coach Rana Asif Maqsood of Pakistan whittled down a crop of 24 hopefuls to a squad list of 12.

They will face national sides from hosts Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Taiwan, Pakistan, Kazakhstan and Hong Kong.

The Cambodians, who will depart on September 24, will have their bus travel to Bangkok paid for by the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia while their accommodation and food will be taken care of by Chaiyapak Siriwat, President of the Thai Hockey Federation and Vice-President of the Asian Hockey Federation.
