Mr Thammawat explained that the playing field and training ground facilities were being prepared to the highest standards to enable the team to perform. He also confirmed that coach Worawan is in the process of identifying and securing his playing staff.

The team recently acquired the services of former Thai international defender Pratum Chuthong, promising young left-back Nathan Rongdej and will be looking to add further quality playing personnel in the coming weeks.

The 2021/22 season is scheduled to start on September 3 following several postponements due to the COVID-19 pandemic and related health and safety protocols.
