The BSS Phuket Under 8’s defeated Kajonkiet FC in their opening game with a comfortable 7-0 victory. BSS then went down 2-0 to Bang Jo but with Bang Jo going on to a 3-0 victory against Kajonkiet FC themselves, it meant BSS Phuket would met Bang Jo again in the final.
In a much improved performance, BSS Phuket recorded a 2-1 final win.
The BSS Phuket Under 10s got off to a winning start against Kajonkiet FC in a 3-0 win. Youth Football Home then entered the competition with a 6-1 win over Kajonkiet FC. In the final group match BSS played some excellent counter attacking football which netted them a 4-0 victory.
BSS met Youth Football (YFH) Home in the final, with the visiting team looking to avenge their previous loss. It was a much tighter match this time around, and looked as if BSS were going to stay unbeaten when they scored from the edge of the area, but with two minutes left YFH got an equaliser to take the match to penalty kicks.
Both YFH and BSS scored their opening spot kicks, but the BSS keeper made a good save to deny YFH their final kick. Siam Yapp then stepped up, on his birthday, to fire in the winning penalty to win the mini tournament for BSS.
“I like playing with and against new players on a proper pitch, and I like my dad watching me play,” said the happy youngster.
With time and light running out, the Under 16's had a lot of possession in the opening match against Villa FC, but eventually went down 1-0 after conceding a late goal. Villa FC eventually went on to become the mini tournament champions, with BSS Phuket placing second.
