FC Phuket look to quench PTT Rayong ‘Fire Power’ on Sunday

Legacy Phuket Gazette

PHUKET: FC Phuket will host PTT Rayong FC this Sunday evening at Surakul Stadium in a match sure to set the tone for the remainder of the Southern Sea Kirin’s season.

Kickoff is set for 6pm.

The last time the two sides met was back in April in Rayong.

In that match, PTT Rayong “Fire Power” won with a single goal scored in the 47th minute by Brazilian midfielder Diego Martins. To read the full report for that match click here.

Phuket look to avenge that loss on Sunday which would extend their winning streak to four games, and keep a forward momentum in their premier league promotion campaign.

PTT Rayong – not to be mistaken with Rayong FC who play in the division two AIS league – last Sunday defeated Suphanburi FC 1 – 0, and are currently in 5th place of the TPL Div One rankings with 38 points from 10 wins, 8 draws and 5 losses.

Phuket are in 8th place with 35 points from 9 wins, 8 draws and 6 losses.

While Buriram FC, Chula United (BBCU) and Chainat FC maintain the top three league places and a foot in the door for promotion, for now, the contest is still within reach for a handful of teams, including Phuket.

Also with 38 points are Songkhla FC (4th place), Bangkok United (6th place) and Rajpracha (7th place) – separated only by goal differences (see table here).

This weekend’s TPL Div One league action resumes on Saturday with three matches.

Starting at 4pm, Bangkok United will look to secure three points albeit an away match against 15th place JW Rangsit.

With the aftertaste of their home loss against Phuket lingering, Songkhla are up in Bangkok for a 6pm match against BBCU at the Army Stadium. In a must-win match that may likely see more visiting fans than home fans, the Southern Fighting Bulls will look to deliver Big Bang Chula United what would be only their 3rd loss at home this season.

Such an accomplishment has so far only been achieved by league leaders, Buriram FC and most recently, Chainat who beat Chula by a single goal on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, the Buriram “Volcanoes” should maintain their impressive record of being undefeated at home when they play 13th place Samut Prakarn Customs United (not to be mistaken with Samut Prakarn FC, playing in the Div Two AIS league). Their match is scheduled for 6pm match at the recently-built I-mobile Stadium

In addition to Phuket and PTT Rayong’s match, five other TPL Div One league matches will be played on Sunday as follows:

Rajpracha – RBAC

Suphanburi FC – Chiangmai FC

Bangkok FC – Chainat FC

Airforce United – Thai Honda

CT Chantaburi – Saraburi FC

For the latest results and fixtures, be sure the check Phuket Gazette online regularly and pick up the latest copy around the island.

As this is the monsoon season, rain is a high probability so show up early for dry seats at Surakul, otherwise bring an umbrella.

Toyota League update:

Pattalung fans were thrilled after their side on Wednesday beat reigning Toyota League Cup champs, premier league side Thai Port FC 1 – 0 in a second leg semifinal in Pattalung on Wednesday.

Despite the win, it will be Thai Port who advance 3-1 on aggregate to the tournament’s finals. Their opponents will be either Buriram PEA or Chonburi FC, to be determined in what will be a sell-out match on Sep 30 in Chonburi.

Buriram PEA won the first leg match on Wednesday 1- 0. If they draw or win Chonburi next Friday, they will advance to the finals for a repeat of last year’s and a chance of revenge, as Thai Port took the honors then winning 2 – 1.

No, your friends can’t come over. No parties. No drinking with friends. No large gatherings. As part of Phuket’s efforts to stop the spread of Covid-19, local authorities have tightened restrictions and say friends are not allowed to gather at private homes.

“No parties of any kind allowed… No house party, no friends gathering in the residence.”

Along with temporary closures of some businesses and venues, the order says, parties involving alcohol are banned and gatherings of more than 30 people are banned. The only gatherings allowed are religious ceremonies like weddings and funerals.

Foreigners who violate any of Phuket’s disease control measures could be deported and lose their permission to stay in Thailand. On Sunday, 2 British men in Phuket were each fined 6,000 baht for having a “party.” Only 6 people were gathered at the home. Police from the Cherng Talay station came by the home after a call from a neighbour.

As Thailand still wrestles to control the third wave of Covid-19, much of which stems from entertainment venues in Bangkok and a massive party in Phuket, Patong police announced that the managers of the Phuket venues that hosted the Kolour superspreader event will be charged under the Emergency Decree. The case report was filed with the public prosecutor yesterday according to the Patong police chief, confirming that 3 people will be prosecuted for the event.

The Kolour Beachside Festival was held April 2 and 3 with events at Café Del Mar Phuket in Kamala, and Shelter Phuket Dance and Night Club and Illuzion Nightclub, both in Patong. Before the festival, Phuket had gone more than a hundred days without any new Covid-19 infections, but by April 7 the Phuket provincial Public Health office announced 8 new infections, half of which had been at the Kolour parties. In the following weeks, officials plead for attendees to be tested as infections spread.

Charges were delayed in being filed to the Phuket Public Prosecutor’s office as a special investigation committee was ordered to be created to oversee the investigation at the request of Region 8’s Police Commander. That committee brought together officials from various law enforcement in the area including the Patong Police, Kamala Police, Phuket Provincial Police, and the Region 8 Police to investigate the Kolour event before anyone was charged.

The manager of Café Del Mar, along with the managing director and the manager of Shelter and Illuzion, which are under the same management team, will be charged for the Kolour festival violating Thailand’s Emergency Decree that was declared to help protect the country from Covid-19 outbreaks. A breach of the Emergency Decree can be held liable for up to 40,000 Baht and 2 years in jail under Section 9 of the Decree.

The latter 2 are also facing charges of operating an unlicensed entertainment venue. This carries the possibility of another year in prison and a fine of up to 60,000 baht, in accordance with Thai Law under Section 26 of the Entertainment Place Act.

Police were called to the scene of a gruesome motorbike accident just after midnight in the Kathu area of Phuket, where a woman was impaled by a steel rod. The 34 year old woman crashed her motorbike into a concrete power pole on Wichit Songkram Rd between the Kathu Shrine and Kathu Municipality. rescue workers responded, and together with police, they arrived to find the woman still hanging from the power pole.

Khanuengnit Onoaun was driving a black and pink Honda Click motorbike and may have been speeding just before being impaled by the rod on the electric pole. Her motorbike was lying nearby the pole with significant damage to the front of the bike and the front wheel.

CCTV footage recovered from the scene suggest that the woman may have fallen asleep and crashed into the power pole. The pole had steel rods protruding from its side that utility workers use to climb when service or repairs are needed to the electrical lines, which is what impaled her when her motorbike hit the pole.

The metal rod pierced the woman’s upper chest and went all the way through her body with about 2 inches exposed on the other side of her as she hung from the pole. Rescue workers could not remove her from the steel rod at the scene of the accident safely and instead chose to cut the rod to take her off the electric pole and into an ambulance. Cutting through the steel took about 5 minutes for the rescuers.

She arrived and was admitted into Vachira Phuket Hospital with the metal rod still impaled through her chest. The hospital had no updates about the woman’s condition after her motorbike crash other than that she is alive and receiving treatment currently. The police plan on questioning her once she has had time to recover and investigating the incident further if necessary.
