A U14 Soccer Team from
New York City Tours England and Scotland

August 1st through the 10th, 2015, a U14 rising team from the Downtown United Soccer Club will travel from their home in New York City to the United Kingdom.

They will begin their trip in Manchester, England, cradle of two of the world's great football teams, where they will train, scrimmage local teams and visit Etihad Stadium, home of Manchester City FC.

Then they will proceed north to Scotland, where they will compete in the Loch Lomand Youth Soccer festival, a prestigious and highly competitive youth tournament. They will visit Edinburgh, Scotland's historic capital, Glasgow, where they will attend a Rangers game, and Stirling, site of the medieval castle from which William Wallace launched his rebellion.

The players will be immersed in the cultures of two great footballing nations, and be exposed to a tougher and more competitive version of their game. They will need to be good ambassadors for their club, their city and their country, both on and off the field.

They are going to learn, to bond and to play. And they want to win. To do so, they will need to demonstrate desire and grit, but also imagination, creativity and élan.

This is the story of their journey from the player’s perspective.
