Elite sports students took Spain by storm as they finished quarter finalists in the Copa Santa 2018!
The WBA Albion Foundation U19 Elite Development Squad students jetted out to Lloret De Mar to take part in the European tournament, taking on German, Swiss, Spanish and Italian opposition.
The side successfully qualified out of their group, before losing a penalty shootout against Italian side ASD Castrezzato in the last eight.
“It has been a fantastic football tour and a great opportunity for all our Albion players to experience European football as part of their development,” said Sandwell College WBA Elite Course Leader, Neil Parker.
“Our students have been first class in the way they have conducted themselves on and off the pitch, they really embraced the culture in Spain, doing both Sandwell College and The Albion Foundation proud.
“We now have the National Football Youth League Cup Final and the remaining National Football Youth League fixtures to look forward to.”
Sandwell College and the Foundation are currently recruiting male and female players aged 16-18 for September’s squad, subject to a full trial and appropriate GCSE grades.
