Also spelled Ekkarat Wongsook-chan, Aekarut Wongsukjan or Akarat Wongsukchan and nickname Beau.


The temam's goalkeeper Bew is very "disciplined" and at the end of each training session he is said to collect the team's equipment. Bew has reportedly improved his game over the past few years as a result of his disciplined personality.

Bew is a student at Darunratwitthaya School.

His father, Adisak told CNN Tuesday that he was "so happy and appreciative" of the international rescue effort that helped free his son and the Wild Boars soccer team.

When his son, along with the rest of the team, was brought to recover in a Chiang Rai hospital, Adisak Wongsukchan said: "I want to hug him... and I want to tell him that I'm happy,"

Even after his son was freed on Monday night, Wongsukchan decided to stay back with the families whose children had yet to be rescued. He knew how agonizing those final moments of the rescue would feel to them. "I promised the other parents, the five, I will wait and come out together. I'm not going to leave them. We're going to go together," Wongsukchan said.


From Beau to his parents
"Please don't worry, mum and dad. I have been gone for two weeks. I will go back and help you with the shop when I can. I will try to go soon."

From Beau's parents To Beau
