The Phnom Penh Post are the surprise leaders of their Mini Soccer championship after opening rounds of fixtures on Tuesday at the Kidzcool Astroturf pitch. The blue-shirted journos gave tournament newcomers ANZ Royal a rocky welcome with a 6-4 defeat in their first game, before smashing debutants Cellcard 12-5 in their second match.

Last season’s fourth place finishers JBCF (formerly known as Indochina) replicated their fine form with two wins out of two on Tuesday to claim second spot behind the Post on goal difference.

Freshers Beeline, meanwhile, got their campaign ball rolling with a 9-4 win against hosts Kidzcool, who were not exactly pretty in pink on the night, losing their other match against Cellcard 5-3 to wind up at the foot of the table on -7 goal difference.

Tonight’s games see champions Devenco begin their title defence, with a riveting rematch of the final against Smart scheduled for 8:10pm. Newly constructed Banzai face Me Mates Place (formerly Expat Advisory) in what promises to be a fierce battle between the expat rivals, while Infinity and Ezecom also return to the plastic pitch to try to improve on their previous campaigns.
