Phuket Sport PSS Academy host local tournament



PHUKET: The Phuket Soccer Schools (PSS) Academy Program welcomed Kajonkiet FC, Bang Jo and a Thalang team to Thanyaura Sports and Leisure Club for a three-team training tournament on Saturday.

The PSS Under-8 team played two matches against Bang Jo. In the first game, the U8s went 1-0 up with a goal by Daniel C, but were pegged back by Bang Jo, who scored two late goals to win 2-1.

In game two, PSS U-8s found it difficult to control Bang Jo’s attacking flair and went down 0-3.

The PSS U8s also played two games against Kajonkiet FC. In the first game, PSS passed the ball well and created many chances with Daniel C scoring twice, William P and Siam Y also scored in the 4-0 win.

In the second match, Kajonkiet FC defended much better and held the hosts to a 1-1 scoreline, with Daniel C scoring for PSS.

The PSS U10 Academy team’s first game was against Kajonkiet FC and they started sluggish going down 2-4 with Poom and Luke C scoring for PSS.

Game two was against Thalang, and despite creating some promising chances, PSS were held to a 1-1 score with Poom scoring.

In the second match against Kajonkiet FC, PSS learned from their previous mistakes and started the game quicker and more aggressive going on to record a 3-0 win with Micah D, Luke C and Fard all scoring.

In their final match of the day, the U10s finished with a well deserved 2-0 win over Thalang. Luke C and Fard both grabbed the PSS goals.

The PSS U12 Academy team played two matches against Thalang and Kajonkiet FC. In game one, PSS went down 0-2 early against Thalang but regrouped and finished the match strong, scoring two late goals.

PSS thought they had done enough to earn a tie but Thalang broke at speed with seconds left and scored to win 3-2 with the final kick of the game.

In game two, PSS were matched up against Kajonkiet FC. With the sun setting, both teams started the match quickly to get the upper hand but both defenses held strong. PSS had slightly more possession but could not get the breakthrough as the game finished 0-0.

PSS ran a seven week goal-keeping program in the build up to the BIS International Tournament, which starts November 9.

The first five weeks focused on the technique of being a goal keeper and the last two weeks were spent on the tactical side, focusing on how to organize defenders through communication.

Head coach Martin Hill said: ” To be offered the chance to incorporate our GK program through Phuket Soccer Schools was a fantastic opportunity and one I relished. All keepers I worked with now have a greater understanding and confidence about their position, and I for one am counting down the days until the prestigious International Tournament at BIS.”
