One of the world’s biggest amateur cricket tournaments was another resounding success in April, with teams coming from all over the world and loads of our local lads and lasses taking part. Supporters and those just after a few drinks and a laugh also turned up for the yearly event that never fails in its objectives.

Unfortunately this year none of the amateur Chiang Mai teams made it past the quarter finals in any event. They did however put in a lot of effort, on the field…and in the bar!

Chiang Mai FC

This season has been quite tough for Chiang Mai FC. They scored in the last minute in their 1-1 game against Chantaburi FC in their home game. They lost 0-1 in their away game against Burirum FC. They drew again 1-1 against Air Force United. And their 10 man team lost 1-3 to Chainat. In their last game they were equalised in the last second against Supanburi FC, 1-1. Overtime was over-long and bottles and cans were thrown at the referee, while some supporters of CMFC waited outside the stadium until 10 p.m. to vent spleen, or worse, against the ref. On the 17th of April, the Tigers became a pussy cat in the game against FC Phuket. They deservedly lost 0 – 4. Their position is now 17th of 18.
