Development Squad heads to Portugal

As the rest of us shiver our way into the New Year the Development Squad are heading for warmer climes. The young Staggies, who have been having a really good season having reached the fifth round of the Scottish Youth Cup for the first time, head off to Browns Sports Complex in Villamoura, Portugal on January 7 for 13 days. While there the squad will enjoy some warm weather training and play at least two games against professional opposition from England and Portugal.

The trip to the camp, which has been used by the Portuguese, Russian and Swedish national teams as well as Premier League high flyers, Leicester City, has been made possible with the generous backing of Erasmus+ sport funding.
