An Accies party of u15s-u17s and staff head to Normandy in France tomorrow to take part in the 26th International u17 Tournament organised by ESMGO in Gonfreville L’Orcher, Le Havre in France. We play French Ligue 2 side Le Havre on Saturday evening at Stade Maurice Baquet then Serbian top flight side Jagodina on Sunday morning then another French side Clermont Ferrand on Sunday evening, before two matches on Monday against possibly Leicester, Den Haag or the local side Gonfreville to determine the final placings.
Head of Youth George Cairns commented, “We were delighted to be asked to take part in this prestigious tournament, and it will be good for the players. Taylor Wilson, just 14, who has played in the u20s this season, will be going along with a mixture of our u15 to u17s. Some of the regulars couldn’t make it due to the current school exam timetable, but we will be going to reprsent the club and do our best.”
