This summer I achieved one of my dreams of going to Scotland. Twelve of the team had the chance to go and spend two weeks in Scotland with two organisations, (Stand International and Street Soccer Scotland). We had a fantastic experience, we saw Cluj play Celtic in a Champions league game. It was an amazing atmosphere, the whole stadium vibrated when Celtic scored a goal. Cluj won the game in the last few minutes.
Each day we went to Street Soccer and learnt how to run a football tournament for the local community, we each had different roles, some of the boys were more involved than others! Stefan, who broke his leg in our first game even though he was on crutches, played a huge part. Each week we had 2 or 3 football matches with various teams, each team treated us with great respect and friendship.
It was an experience I will never forget going to Scotland and seeing so many places, people and also having the chance to support Street Soccer and the work that they are doing. We made some great friends, thank you to everyone at Street Soccer Scotland for making us feel so at home and so welcome.
