Boeung Ket aiming to recapture MCL glory

Officials of Boeung Ket Rubber Field, who finished runners up in the Metfone C-League for the second successive season, vowed to recreate their triumph of 2012 during the club’s annual awards ceremony at Mean Mean Restaurant in Boeung Keng Kang II commune on Tuesday night.

“With the support and inspiration from the whole Boeung Ket staff, I strongly believe that Boeung Ket will lift the trophy next season,” team manager Be Makara said during his address.

The Kampong Thom club won 15 matches, drew two and lost five to finish seven points off the pace of champions Phnom Penh Crown.

“We may recruit a new foreign coach next term, but we will likely not part ways with our current coach Prak Vuthy. He will probably go to lead our youth academy,” he added.
