Chok’s Away! Defender Off to Suphanburi


The mid-season transfer window is aproaching, and already one Port player is on the move. Young right-back Meechok Marhasaranukun has announced that he’s packing his bags and heading off to Suphanburi as soon as the window reopens.

It’s not hard to understand why the Chok should have put out a “come & get Mee” plea – he’s behind Nitipong in the pecking order, and given Niti’s consistency and fitness, he’s likely to see even less action than Jadet’s salad tongs.

Meechok joined Port in 2016 from the defunct TOT and has made 28 appearances for the club, as well as getting capped at Thai U19 & U21 levels, but Nitipong’s emergence last season as a top quality T1 right-back has seen his chances limited to the occasional cup or substitute appearance, and at his age he needs more game time. Whether he’s any more likely to get it at Suphanburi we do not know, but good luck Meechok from all at The Sandpit!
