PHUKET: The inaugural Phuket Youth Cup concluded last Sunday with two exciting matches at Surakul Stadium.

In the grand finale, it was Mueang Thalang School prevailing 3-1 over the OrBorJor Talad Neua team to win the grand trophy and 20,000-baht prize money.

Two of the champions’ goals were scored by Konathip Laemee, who bagged 13 goals throughout the tournament to secure the golden boot award.

Thalang’s other goal came from defender Anuchit Sangsawang, who subsequently awarded the “excellent player” award.

Scoring the consolation goal for OrBorJor Ban Talad Neua was Kietisak Pai-roh.

In the match for 3rd place, Chalermprakiet School bagged the trophy and price money of 5,000 baht, beating Cherng Thalay Witayakom 2-0 thanks to two second half goals by Piyasak Nitetsanapakul.

Cherng Thalay Wittayakom also received a prize of 3,000 baht.

Winning the “politeness excellence” award was British International School Phuket.
