Crown cancel Thai trip

CPL champions Phnom Penh Crown were forced to cancel their trip to Thailand on Tuesday due to their failure to gather sufficient documen-tation from some of their foreign players for visas in time. "We are sorry we couldn't make the trip," said Crown manager Makara Be by phone Tuesday, adding that he intends to organise a trip to Thailand sometime in the near future. Crown were aiming to use the trip to expose some of their players to Thai Premier League (TPL) teams - who will go on a mid-season break in a week's time - for potential transfer consideration. Meanwhile, Crown's Cameroonian-born striker Jean-Roger Lappe Lappe, who is on a two month loan to TPL strrugglers Samuth Songkhram FC, is expected back August 15.
