Pro Youth category makes debut at Loch Lomond Tournament

Written by 

On Friday the Loch Lomond Festival will kick off for the 15th year, but for the first time it will host an elite section with four of the Under 17 sections of prestigious pro-youth clubs from England and Scotland taking part. Celtic FC, Partick Thistle, Fife Elite Football Academy and Sheffield United will all field teams in this invite-only category.

The tournament will host a one-off mini-league competition for the four clubs, with each club playing each other once, followed by a final between the top two in the group.

Celtic kick the competition off with a game against Sheffield United on Friday, and then follow that match up with fixtures against Fife Elite and Partick Thistle on Saturday and Sunday respectively.

Partick Thistle face Fife Elite to begin with, followed by Celtic and finishing up against Sheffield United on Sunday. This will be followed by the showpiece cup final.

Celtic enter the tournament after triumphing at the Denis Law Tournament in the last two seasons.

However, with that much talent on show and many possible future Scotland internationals playing in the tournament, the quality and competitiveness will definitely make the games worth watching.

The fixtures, which will all take place at Stirling University, are as follows:

Friday 7th August, 7pm
Celtic FC vs Sheffield United
Fife Elite Football Academy vs Partick Thistle
Saturday 8th August, 10am
Sheffield United vs Partick Thistle
Celtic FC vs Fife Elite Football Academy
Sunday 9th August, 1:15pm
Partick Thistle vs Celtic FC
Sheffield United vs Fife Elite Football Academy
Sunday 9th August, 3:15pm
Cup Final - 1st vs 2nd
