West Coast Soccer goes international

In early August, members from both West Coast U17 girls teams headed to Glasgow, Scotland to compete in the Glasgow City Cup tournament. They played five games against seasoned Scottish teams including a victory over the historic Celtic United to get them to the finals. They also played in an international friendly match against Scotland’s premier soccer club, Hamilton FC. “This is the first of many future international soccer Trips for West Coast Soccer Club, after an incredibly busy start to the summer we capped it off with an unbelievable international experience where the players immersed themselves in a passionate soccer culture” says West Coast DOC Troy Dayak. While in Scotland they attended the Rangers vs. Hamilton FC Premier League match. This was the Rangers first game back in the Scottish Premiership after a three year absence due to administration, so the environment was a once in a lifetime experience. They were also treated to a special private stadium & facility tour of one of the most successful clubs in the world, Celtic FC.
