Chonburi crush Crown in U15 Trophy clash

Phnom Penh Crown Academy suffered another loss on the road in the Frenz-FAM U15 ASEAN Champions Trophy, with Thai hosts Chonburi Academy beating them 3-0 on Saturday.

A 26th-minute opener and two strikes in quick succession late on put paid to the Cambodian boys’ hopes in a result that kept them one place off the foot of Group A with a single point from five matches in the regional competition so far.

Crown will face East Timor U15s, who beat them 4-1 away last Tuesday, at the Old Stadium next Saturday.
