u12s set for barcelona cup

18th February 2023

In April of this year, 26 players from Lurgan Town's U12s will make their way to Spain to compete in the Barcelona Cup, an international youth football tournament in Cambrils. The tournament involves over 100 teams from 20 counties across the world and will be played on 15 and 16 April 2023.

Phil McKinley, Acadmey Director at Lurgan Town said, "This is an amazing opportunity for the boys to compete in an international tournament, an experience that will stay with them for the rest of their lives. A lot of hard work goes into making the trip happen.  The parents have been busy organising various fundraising events and raised a substantial amount of money already."

Phil continued: "Not only will our boys be representing the club, but also the town and country and we wish them and the coaches every success".

The club wish to thank all the sponsors and parents who helped to make this trip a reality. 

A 'thank you' evening has been organised on 27 March at 8pm in the club house at Lurgan Town and all supporters, sponsors and media are invited to attend. The U12 coaches wish to thank the following sponsors;
