Phuket FC pre season

Phuket FC beat last season's divison 2 (southern section) champions Narratiwat 2-1 in a very impressive display at Sapan Hin last weekend.

Narratiwat finished top of division 2 (southern section) and won the play offs to get promoted to division 1 so this is a very big win for Phuket FC, or FC Phuket as I believe they are calling themselves this year.

Phuket FC's season will kick off on February 14th at the Surakul Stadium against Pattalung. Kick off will probably be at 4pm.

Phuket FC

Phuket FC were formed in 2009 and compete in Division 2 (southern section) of the Thai league along with teams like Krabia, Trang and Hat Yai.

Phuket FC play their home games at the Surakul Stadium in Phuket Town. In their first season they finished second bottom with only goal difference keeping them from the bottom of the table.

Lessons appear to have been learned from that disappointing first season and Phuket FC now have a new coach, Arjhan Songgamsub, who has been taking pre season training at the FIFA Pitch in Cape Panwa.

Phuket FC also have several new players and have benefited from a link up with Thai premier league champions Muang Thong Utd which will see several Muang Thong Utd squad players represent Phuket FC this season.

The squad have been training together every single day since October and should be well prepared to make a better impression when the new season starts in March.
