Barcelona 2020 | Galston Youth Ready to Test Themselves Abroad

Written by 
Galston Youth 2010's are counting down the days until their trip to take part in the Barcelona Easter Tournament in 2020.
The West Region side will be making their furthest ever trip when they fly ut to sunny Salou in April and Head Coach Lynsey Bertoncini says the boys can't wait to get started.
"The squad can’t wait; this is something we have been looking forward to from when we started out as a team. 
"They love each week to ask “who are we playing?” so to see their faces when we say a team from Europe will be brilliant. 
"The squad take part in many tournaments although our furthest afield to date has been the Edinburgh Cup. We have many very well run local tournaments and the boys love taking part and have built an extensive medal collection over the years!"
During the tournament Galston will take on teams from all across Europe, something that excites Bertoncini and her coaches as much as her players.
"We are all excited! We are looking forward to seeing the boys playing brilliant football against teams from all over. Also the team building element from the boys travelling together and spending time together over the course of the weekend.
"It is an amazing opportunity for my team to play against various calibres of teams from all over Europe and to test themselves. Experience like this will build their skills and confidence all whilst having fun with their peers.
"I also hope the boys take it all in and soak up the experience creating memorable moments to look back on in years to come. When they are older with their own kids I hope they look back on their grassroots years with fondness, remembering the experiences like this, the friendships they gained and that it creates a passion for them to want to continue the grassroots experience to the next generations."
The team has been together since 2014 and Bertoncini has always made it her goal to get her squad out to a European tournament at some stage and is grateful that the opportunity to travel to Barcelona with Trans World Soccer came up.
She knows that the competition will be tough, but is confident that her side will do themselves proud.
"Our impressive football, team spirit, positive attitude and not forgetting our enthusiastic parents will all contribute to us standing out!
All the coaches believe we can go and win this. We will do Galston Youth FC proud and the boys will make each one of the coaches burst with pride no matter where we finish."
