Help Burgh boys to Va­len­cia for their 50th

East Kilbride News - - SPORTS -

East Kil­bride Burgh 2006 are hop­ing YOU can help their dream trip to Va­len­cia be­come a re­al­ity.

To cel­e­brate their 50th an­niver­sary, the club are aim­ing to raise £10,000 to take the young­sters on a trip of a life­time in April next year, where they would spend four ac­tion-packed days with Span­ish La Liga sideVa­len­cia.

Dur­ing their ex­cur­sion, the play­ers will stay at a ho­tel at Va­len­cia’s first team train­ing com­plex and will be trained there by Va­len­cia’s pro­fes­sional coaches.

They will also play matches against the Va­len­cia youth team, as well as lo­cal sides.

But it won’t all be hard train­ing for the kids as they will also spend time see­ing the lo­cal sights and soak­ing up the cul­ture.

EK Burgh cur­rently have 18 play­ers and the ma­jor­ity of them have been with the team since they were five years old.

Hav­ing de­vel­oped through the var­i­ous for­mats of Fun 4, five-a-side and seven-aside, the team will move to 11-a-side games in Au­gust next year.

Coach An­thony Devlin said: “Our aim is to raise the re­quired funds to pay for the full costs of the 18 play­ers so they can all at­tend this fan­tas­tic ex­pe­ri­ence.

“We also hope to buy them new strips and track­suits for the trip.

“Al­ready we have a num­ber of fundrais­ing ac­tiv­i­ties un­der­way but we still need fur­ther sup­port.

“This is an op­por­tu­nity that most of the play­ers will never have again and we want to en­sure they have the best ex­pe­ri­ence.”
