BAA side to face top Spanish teams

Kenny Thompson will fly to Spain tomorrow night with a few youngsters from BAA to compete in the Under-12 Powerade Cup in Barcelona next weekend.

The small group will include three BAA players and two guest players, and players will be added to the team from Spanish clubs, with a total of 20 teams competing in the tournament. Among those will be eight professional teams, including seven La Liga teams and one from Portugal, and 12 amateur sides.

“It's a good opportunity for our boys to compete against really top quality opponents from teams such as Barcelona, Real Madrid, Valencia and others,” Thompson said.

“It will be a real eye opener as to what top football looks like and feels like. We'll leave on Sunday and arrive in Barcelona on Monday. We'll use the week training and watching La Liga games.”

The tournament will be held over three days next weekend.

Spain bound: Thompson
