Outthilath guarded the goal for Lao Toyota FC in the Lao Premier League as the club secured their fourth domestic league title and was also their first-choice goalkeeper during their AFC Cup 2019 campaign which ended in the group stages after finishing behind PSM Makassar, Home United FC and Kaya FC-Iloilo.
The young shot-stopper was also part of the Laos national team that took part in the AFF Suzuki Cup 2018 last year.
Rayong FC won the promotion to the Thai League 1 after finishing third in the Thai League 2 last season behind second division champions BG Pathum United and runners-up Police Tero FC.
