UNDER-14 ACADEMY SIDE JETTING OFF ON TOUR TO PORTUGAL

2 November 2023

BURTON Albion's under-14 Academy age group are heading to Portugal for an oversees tour.

The young Brewers are taking part in the Under-14s Portimao International Cup, which is taking place between 3-4 November in the Algarve, Portugal.

Drawn in group B for the tournament, they will face sides such as Italian side Juventus, Spanish side Real Betis, Dutch outfit Ado Den Haag, Vitoria SC from Portugal, Mészöly Focisuli from Hungry and Finnish side FDS.

Flying out on Thursday 2nd November, they will play three days of matches and return home on Sunday 5th November. 

Youth Development Phase Lead Coach Dave Freeman said: "Just like the other tours we have done (Rotterdam, Athens, Lithuania) this is a fantastic opportunity for our players to further develop not only their football skills, but life skills & experiences as well.

"We have seen from tours that other age groups have participated in the unbelievable opportunities they provide. The teams become more together after these events and have really progressed their development on and off the field in particularly socially.

"This tournament in particular features huge teams such as Juventus and Real Betis and it'll be a test that the boys will relish and hopefully learn a lot from to take back home with them."
