37th annual Phu Phan Cup is history

For a second year Sakon A wins the trophy, this year with no losses.  The final game of the series ended with a 4 -1 win by Sakon A over Loei.

Even though I enjoy the series I'm not at all overjoyed by the military domination of the event. Uniforms occupy all the shaded seats, while regular fans, visitors, and even the occasional tourist must endure seats without shade.

Quite a number of the Sakon A team are well known in the area as they played for the regional Sakon Nakhon FC in past years.

There were a number of unknowns to me. The fact that they won all games shows that they were good at the sport and worked well as a team.

There was one standout: Diarra Abou, made all those winning goals of the final game. With his talents he should be having no problem for an illustrious career

The regional football season won't start for another three months, but there are other local competitions and plenty of local futsal.
