The partnership will give all club coaches access to the platform, mutual promotion of both companies, as well as a podcast planned from later in the year, with Charlie adding ”Last season was such a rollercoaster I decided to start keeping voice notes. I might have needed them in court or just for memories but it’s actually become a little library of some interesting stories. The idea has evolved quickly and I’m looking forward to getting started with it”.
The deal comes of the back of a number of announcements by the club as they seek to strengthen both on and off the pitch. Last season Next Step FC finished 11th in CPL 2, second bottom of the Cambodian football pyramid.
