Nearly 40 youth football teams from Hong Kong, Singapore, Bangkok, Koh Samui and Phuket took part.

“We were fortunate in that the weather, although hot, had a cooling breeze throughout the weekend,” said the tournament organiser, PSS head coach Martin Hill. 

“The facilities gave us a fantastic platform for PSS to showcase our biggest event of the year. Phuket FC involvement on the finals day added more excitement and the tournament players had the chance to shine in front of their idols.”

A total of 350 players in 38 teams competed in the tournament’s four age divisions: Under 8s, Under 10s, Under 12s and Under 14s. Cups and plates were awarded in each category.

On Sunday the tournament players were joined by Phuket FC assistant coach Choo Chai and three of the team’s professional players: Giorgi Tsimakuridze, Nontaphan Jiensathawong, and Kampon Phatomakkakul, who helped make the presentation a memorable experience.
