Weekly Round-Up 30th September-4th October 2019

A new Month begins in Spain:

This Monday saw the arrival of our new Spain Academy recruits to the villa. The warmth and sunshine continues as the month of October begins in style. The academy boys had their first training session on Wednesday, with a full 11 v 11 match on our state of the art 3G pitch. A great chance to introduce themselves on the pitch in front of academy coaches, staff and scouts. It’s looking to be a high quality month ahead!

After being called up to the national squad for St. Lucia, 20 year old Chaim has since made his debut, coming off the bench against El Salvador in front of a full stadium.
