King's Cup 1984 (Bangkok, Thailand)


16th edition, played 22 Dec 83 - 5 Jan 84.

THAILAND                    4  3  1  0  8- 0  7
INDONESIA YOUTH             4  3  0  1 14- 3  6

Philippines U23             4  0  0  4  1-21  0

Notes: An Indonesian magazine reported in detail that the Indonesian team was PSSI Garuda
 (meaning the national youth team), but a Thai source reported the Indonesian team as "Medan".
 The same Thai source reported the South Korean club as "Citizen Bank", which suggests it was
 Kookmin Bank (Kookmin translates as Citizen).  The standard of the Singapore B team was
mentioned
 by both the Indonesian and Thai sources.  The Philippines U23 team was mentioned as such
 in the Indonesian magazine, though it is possible that the games were regarded as full
 internationals by their association.

Pahang (Malaysia)            4  0  1  3  4-14  1

Notes: the Western Australia state team was described by some sources as simply
 "Perth" and by another source as the "Black Swans".  The Liverpool Amateur team
 was a selection of 15 amateur players by the Liverpool County FA.  They had been
 invited by the organizers through the influence of Ed Thangaraja, a Bangkok Post
 journalist, and his contacts with John Parrott (a professional snooker player from Liverpool).
 The Malaysian team was reported as Pahang by a Thai source.


23-12-83 Thailand B     0-0 August 1st
  [National Stadium, crowd 3000]

 1- 1-84 Thailand B     0-1 W.Australia
 1- 1-84 Pahang         1-7 Liverpool Amateur    (0-5 HT)
  [Goals: ? / Steve Haw x3, ?]

Notes: Before their final match against the Malaysian team, the organizers told Liverpool that
 their return flights back to England had already been booked for the following day.  Liverpool
 needed to win the match by a margin of at least six goals in order to advance, and based on
 their first three results the organizers did not think this was possible.
