Buriram PEA Send Kids To Leicester City

Eight Buriram PEA players left for England yesterday to train with Championship side Leicester City for six months.

Buriram PEA players at Suvarnabhumi airport before leaving for England yesterday.

They are Kirati Kaewsombut, Ukrit Wongmeena, Yodsapol Tiengda, Chitiphat Tanklang, Piyapong Homkajorn, Arthit Promkhan, Chaowat Weerachart and Nattawut Sombatya.

Kirati, Ukrit, Yodsapl and Chitiphat, who are over 18 years old, will train with Leicester's reserve team, while the other four will train with players from other countries.

The players are from Buriram PEA's Road to Stardom project. Leicester City are owned by Thailand's duty free retailer King Power.

Buriram PEA chairman Newin Chidchob said the eight could be future stars of the club and the national team.

Newin said he planned to develop under-16 players and urged parents to send their skilful children to join Buriram PEA football academy.

"We are willing to give Thai players chances to become successful in football," he said. "Parents should take their children to Buriram football academy. If they are good enough, we promise to give them all the support they need."
