Silsden fly flag for England in Catalonia

Silsden Under 16A are preparing to fly to Barcelona on Sunday to defend the Copa Catalunya Trophy, won last summer by the previous U16 side.
They are the only English team in a tournament with 13 other teams from all over Europe.
Silsden have been placed in the u17A section of the competition where their opponents will be Italians Real Genoa and I Falchi; Danes Horning IF; US Carqueiranne La Crau, from France; Dutch side EVV Eindhoven AV; and Ulks Mazowsze Mietne, from Poland.
The B section consists of teams from Denmark, Finland, Italy, the Netherlands and Scotland.
Since Christmas, the Silsden squad have been raising funds to get them to the Euros and they are now raring to go.
Before they left, the squad thanked everyone who supported them over the last seven months, especially Barclays Bank, Angel Telecom, Tesco, Sainsburys and Morrisons, plus all the people who have attended functions and sponsored and supported them in their quest.
Pictured are squad members with Stuart Hudson, of Angel Telecom, who has helped supply the team’s travelling kit.
