The Farangutans took a break over the New Year and didn’t play many matches. Their only game came against Lanna International School and was a tight affair all the way. Lanna went ahead within a few minutes with a beautiful shot by one of their younger players. FFC came back though and the game ended 3-1 to the more experienced Farangutans.
Chiang Mai expat teams are still looking for other teams to play, so whether you read this in Bangkok or Bradford, if you want a game of competitive football then why not come to Chiang Mai.
