Federation rejects Crown appeal over probe findings

Phnom Penh Crown have been told by the Football Federation of Cambodia that their appeal against the decision of the FFC’s Disciplinary Committee has been rejected.

“Phnom Penh Crown Football Club were advised by the FFC that our appeal has not been successful and the disciplinary committee have upheld all of their original findings.

They did not call us to attend any appeal hearing,” the club said in a statement yesterday. Crown youth coach Bouy Davy has been banned for two years, while three other officials received one-year bans over a plot to influence the outcome of several matches last season.

Seven players accused of involvement in the plot have been exonerated of any wrongdoing. Crown general secretary Ly Heang said: “We didn’t agree with the decisions of the FFC Disciplinary Committee and registered our objections on appeal.

The Committee chose to uphold all of their original decisions and informed us, at the same time as other clubs and the media. We are now considering our further options in this matter.”
