Junk on Show at the PAT: Port Take on Samut Sakhon FC


Following last night’s somewhat shambolic 4-2 defeat at home to Ang Thong FC, Port have announced another friendly – they’re taking on Samut Sakhon FC, aka The Proud Junk Ship (possibly THE greatest nickname in Thai – or any – football) on Wednesday 7 June.

Samut Sakhon are currently top of T3 Lower, having achieved successive promotions in 2015 and 2016, topping the division each time, so the Proud Junk Ship clearly has the wind in its sails and will be confident as it heave-hos into Port on Wednesday night. Let’s hope our boys are a lot more shipshape than they were last night and ready to repel Samut Sakhon’s scurvy seadogs.

KO is, as usual, 5pm, entrance is free, and the usual friendly booze amnesty applies. Beers ahoy!
