Strand Celtic Excel in Costa Brava Cup

Our U17 squad did their country and club proud when competing in the Costa Brava cup recently.

The lads fell out at the quarter final stage to a german side having topped their group without conceding a goal. Indeed the lads beat the tournament winners SV Ehan one nil in their first game.

With a small squad and two of their main players injured in advance of the tournament this was an incredible performance by the U17 as they played six games in three days.

Well done to team manager Seamus Gilligan and his squad. The lads also visited Barcelona City and the Nou Camp stadium.
