The FA Youth Cup 2010-2011 brought an intriguing fixture last week as Pattaya United took on local rivals Chonburi FC in a Group C encounter at the Chonburi administration organization sports stadium on December 28.
Chances were hard to come by in a furiously contested first half with United’s Siriwat Lunklang coming closest to breaking the deadlock with a shot that just skimmed the wrong side of goal.

The hosts Chonburi piled on the pressure in the second half and after Piya Kruawan had headed over the Pattaya bar with the goal at his mercy, the Shark’s Adisorn Sapso was unlucky to see his snapshot rebound off the post and out to safety just moments later.
Adisorn was sent off for his second bookable offence late in the second half but it made no difference to the eventual outcome as the match fizzled out into a 0-0 draw.
United’s next match in this tournament will be on Saturday, January 8 against TOT CAT FC at the Nongprue Stadium in Pattaya.
