Madrid 2020 | Fair City Looking Ahead to First International Tournament

Written by 
Fair City will be heading out to the Madrid Youth Cup, in what will be their first venture into international football competition.
The Perthshire side will be one of many teams from around Europe taking part in the tournament in the Spanish capital and coach Danielle Millar is hoping that it will prove to be a positive experience for all involved.
She said, "The boys are all very excited. We have a large parent involvement too and they are equally excited.
"We’re hoping the boys experience the rewards of playing, travelling, eating and training together as a team, giving them a feeling of playing as a pro team would.
"We’re also hoping the boys relish the experience of playing international teams."
Until this point, Fair City have only been involved in local tournaments and will be hoping that taking part in something a little further from home will be a rewarding experience for them.
The East Region side will also have a vocal backing following them, with a large number of parents getting involved as well.
Millar hopes that the boys get the most out of the experience.
"We will be happy if the boys play well and to the best of their abilities. That will make us most proud & we can’t ask for more than that.
"Being our first international tournament , it will be difficult to judge winning against others, let alone the whole tournament...would be a great feeling though!"
