In this edition of #WhatsYourStory we look forward to Hillwood Thistle’s trip to The Blackpool International Trophy with Trans World Soccer.
Youth Football Scotland caught up with Brian, who coaches the 2003’s and he was happy to tell us a little more about the team.
The Blackpool International Trophy is important to Hillwood Thistle for a reason unlike most others, it is the first tournament for the team.
It will be a special trip for the 2003s, who Brian told us ‘were formed out of a group of kids who weren’t getting games at their own club’, so will be looking to leave their mark and get Hillwood Thistle off to a winning start in the tournament.
The team understand that it won’t be easy, but Brian says the boys are ‘looking forward to testing themselves against quality opposition as they are a new team’.
Hillwood Thistle 2003’s will be joining a number of Scottish teams at The Blackpool International Trophy, along with a host of foreign teams, but with it being their first ever tournament together, they ought to have an extra spring in their step.
