Hockey team to hit up Bangkok indoor event

A Cambodian women’s hockey team is being hastily assembled in time for the Women’s Indoor Asia Cup in Bangkok from October 2 to 7.

A squad of 18 players will be selected for the tournament from training sessions held at the Prek Eng Primary School, in Kandal province’s Kien Svay district, in the three months leading up to the tournament.

The team is coached by Rana Asif Maqsood of Pakistan, who currently funds the US$150 monthly cost of running the training on his own, although Cambodian Hockey Federation president Vath Chamroeun claims to be looking for sponsors.

A one-month course in Thailand prior to the competition has been pledged by Chhaypak Siriwat, president of the Asian Hockey Federation and its Thai counterpart.

Thirteen nations are slated to compete for the title in October.
