Spain continued their fine form beating a determined Brazil in their first game, and Thailand managed to edge past an improving England side. 

The second set of matches saw an upset as England beat leaders Spain by a single goal, defending resolutely. Thailand won their second match of the weekend, comfortably beating Brazil.

The Under 14 division was next to grace the BIS fields. Spain managed to beat Thailand Blue in their opening game, with Brazil and Argentina defeating Thailand Green and England respectively. 

In the second round of matches, England scored a last-second winner to beat Thailand Blue in a thrilling encounter, Spain continued to put the pressure on at the top of the table by defeating Thailand Green, and Argentina still prove to be the team to beat as they beat Brazil.


“The teams are well balanced and the new bonus point system is working well and making the coaches and players think about their tactics more,” said FPL organiser Martin Hill of Phuket Soccer Schools.

“Thanks to our sponsors Tawan and Yorkshire Inn and Spa for their support in making this league happen. With just two weeks left the league tables are starting to take shape, with all teams looking for more points.”

The Fair Play League continues at the British International School this Sunday. For more information, contact info@phuketsoccerschools
