Contributors Wanted!

The Sandpit is run by a team of enthusiastic unpaid volunteers who ask for little more out of life than cold beers before the match, 110% during it, and maybe more cold beers afterwards. We cannot run this site alone so we’re looking for:


Want to write a match report, an article about an away trip, an opinion piece about the goings-on at the PAT, or a simple news or transfer rumour story? Send it over, and provided it’s not libellous, and conforms to basic standards of grammar, spelling and punctuation, we’ll post it.


We’re not looking for Cartier-Bresson standard shots here, but if you’ve got some good pictures (or videos) from Port games, whether they’re of the match or the fans, then please share and we’ll happily credit you.


Want to promote your business to literally dozens of Bangkok-based expats? Send us an email and we’ll send you our advertising & sponsorship rates.


If you want to get involved in any capacity, email We cannot offer payment for your contributions but pre-match beers are a distinct possibility.
