U13/U14 Barcelona Football Tour

30 boys from S2 and S3 enjoyed five action packed days in Barcelona recently. On the first evening they went to watch Espanyol v Real Betis and celebrated with the home fans when Espanyol scored a 92nd minute winning goal. There were two excellent training sessions with Espanyol coaches at their impressive coaching facility, some time on the beach, and an insightful tour of Barcelona`s 99,000 capacity Nou Camp stadium. The boys also played four fixtures against local Barcelona teams - Esparreguera and Almeda.

The opposition were very good but we fought hard for a range of results including a 2-2 draw, and a 4-2 defeat. Although results did not go our way in the fixtures this did not reduce the enjoyment of the tour in a wonderful city.
