LHP supporting Boston United under-12s on their Barcelona trip

Boston United under-12 girls’ team have just returned from a dream trip to the Nou Camp Stadium in Barcelona, thanks to our generous sponsorship of the side.

The young Boston team were the only girls’ squad to take part in the Europa Cup – a youth tournament featuring teams from England, Wales, Denmark, Spain, Malaysia and Zambia – and finished third in the competition, which was held at the world-famous home of Barcelona Football Club.

After being invited to the tournament earlier this year, the team’s coaches set up an online fundraising portal to raise £6,000, which would cover the cost of taking the side to Barcelona, and they were boosted by our sponsorship of £1,000.

This meant that when the team became the first English grassroots girls team to take to the Nou Camp’s hallowed turf, which has been graced by such stars as Lionel Messi, Ronaldinho and Diego Maradona, they were proudly sporting our logo on their shirts.

The girls impressed with their performances at the 99,000-seater stadium, which included famous spectators, such as former England captain David Platt.

Jamie Hunt, Head of Digital and Social at Sky Sports, was also in attendance for the tournament and he praised the girls for their efforts, and he said:

“It was a pleasure to watch Boston’s brilliant girls play some incredible football in Barcelona.

“These girls definitely can and everyone at Boston United and the Boston United Community Foundation should be immensely proud of them.”
