FC Phuket ready for Suphanburi elephant charge | The Thaiger

PHUKET: FC Phuket are back into action with a tough match against Suphanburi FC this afternoon at Surakul Stadium.

The field should be sloppy, as the stadium was hit with heavy rains last night and again this afternoon.

Coming into the sixth fixture for the 2012 Thai Yamaha 1 league, Phuket are in 10th place with a win, three draws and a loss. Their opponents, the Suphanburi “Elephent Calvery” or “Warriors”, are in 9th place following 2 wins, 2 draws and a loss.

Suphanburi boasts the highest budget of all 18 teams in the Yamaha 1 league, reported to have as much as 50mn baht to spend this season.

Much of this is tied to Suphan’s foreign lineup, which includes two Brits, two Japanese, an Ivorian, a Korean and a Cameroonian.

By contrast, Phuket FC’s projected budget is only 20mn baht, mostly to cover the salaries of its three Ivorians, two Brazilians and two Koreans.

According to Thai Premier League regulations, each team is allowed to field only three non-Asian players, in addition to one non-Thai Asian (the “3+1 rule”) on the pitch at the same time, while the res tmust be Thai.

For complete information and league results, see the match report online after tomorrow and the full report in the paper.

Kickoff today will commence at 4pm. Adult tickets are 80 baht, children 20 baht.

Season tickets are still available at the main gate on Wichit Songkhram Road.

The Phuket Tourist Police have been notified that a tourist had jumped from a building in Rawai and ended up on a steel awning covering the bottom floor today. But that wasn’t, in fact, what had happened.

The local Tourist Police say the owner of the building told staff at the Tourist Assistance Centre that the tourist had checked into the room on February 13.

The tourist didn’t actually jump down from the building but had moved a mattress from his room on to the awning and slept on it (mosquitos!!) He was also drunk and damaged some property inside the room.

The man is a 37 year old Estonian tourist. He was staying at the room with a 25 year old male friend.

Chalong Police have charged them both with being drunk and damaging property. They have said that they will pay for all damages to the owner of the property. They are heading back home on February 26.

Read more about the racing around Patong’s streets HERE.

Patong Police report that they have now arrested one motorbike racer and charged him with the maximum fine.

Patong Police are also asking motorbike rental operators to explain basic traffic rules for motorbike drivers who want to rent a motorbike.

(The Thaiger is assuming this would be covered when they get their motorbike license, which they are required to have before a motorbike is rented to them.)
