Under-14s & U12s head to Holland
Swans Academy Under-14s and Under-12s head to Holland this week to face some of Europe’s best young teams in the DSO Cup.
Both age groups will face teams from European countries including Holland, Slovakia and Belgium before progressing into the knock-out stages of the competition.
The under-12s take on ADO Den Haag, FK Senica, Sparta Rotterdam and Eendracht Aalast.
Meanwhile the under-14s face sv DSO, Anderlecht, Club Brugge, PEC Zwolle and FC Groningen from Friday evening.
Head of Foundation, Daniel Maxwell said: “This is a great opportunity for two of our academy age groups to gain some tour experience and play young teams from across Europe.
“There are some big names taking part and we are playing against three different nationalities as part of this tournament.
“Our under-12s are a young squad, so it will be a good opportunity for them to get some game experience against older players.
“I am confident our academy players will learn different styles of play and cultures from the trip.”
