Regional Development Update
Open Letter from Regional Chairman

Dear Clubs

On behalf of the West Region welcome to the new season. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who once again supported the Region last season, whether it was your involvement in The Regional Cup  or nominating players for our Squads. Last season saw record attendances at our finals and every game was a credit to your club. The Regional squads also saw record number of players nominated at all age groups and we would ask you all  for your support once again. We will again be running squads from 14’s and 19’s with the 15’s and 16’s again taking part in the Inter Regional Cup Finals. May I take this opportunity to congratulate the under 15 squad for winning the Inter Regional Cup and also to the under 17 team who won the Intersport Tournament in Hungary, Well doneboth squads. If anyone has any questions or points involving the Region please contact either myself or Elizabeth Canning Vice Chair and we will only be willing to help

Thanks again for all your support

Peter Glancey

Chairman West Region

West 17's win Intersport Youth Festival in Hungary in 2014
1997 Squad Crowned Champions beating Italians in Final

The Under 17's had a tremendous Tournament in Hungary in the summer of 2014. They went undefeated through the whole event and with this being the Regions Fourth attempt in this Competition the young Scots did the Region proud and brought back the Trophy. Yet again the comments from the players could be summarised as " It was the best football experience of my Life". The Tournament Organisers themselves were impressed by the players both on and off the park and were delighted that the Region had a Squad in attendance this year as it was their 10th Anniversary. This also follows on the back of their International Tournament win in Teneriffe the year before, cracking sustained performances and a credit to the Coaches of the Regional Squad, David, Jamie and George and to all the Clubs who supported the Regional Trials

West Crowned Champs in Teneriffe
1997 Squad win Barcelona Tournament

This was a new event for the Region and the 1997 Squad didn’t let the West down. They played well in their warm up games before entering the Tournament proper.

They won their Semi Final to reach the Final and again came through strong. The game was stopped with minutes to go due to a bad injury to a Spanish player when West were ahead and the were crowned Champions as a result

Well done to the Coaches and Players at this age level

 

 

1999's - Denmark Cup 2013
West Squad win Tournament - Undefeated

The West Region Squad went through the whole week undefeated winning the Denmark Cup

They had a great week and Coach Iain King said that is was a great experience for the players who bonded over the season as well as the football there was a Theme Park and various Tournament Activities and Iain thanked the Tournament itself for such a great week

 

Intersport Youth Football Festival Kaposvar Hungary
Under 17's receive great praise for performances

Well It was a bit of a Hungarian Heartbreak for this group, they played fantastic as a Squad and reach the Final of the Tournament against a local Hungarian pro youth side. The game ended 0-0 after extra time and the West lost out 7-6 on penalties

Nevertheless it was a great week for the players with many saying it was the football experience of their lives quite an acoldae for the West Development set up and the Tournament Organisers

 

 

1998 Donosti Cup - 2013
Great Week of Football, but penalties knocked Squad Out

This was the second Year this Squad had travelled during the summer and the Donosti Cup was a highly recommended Tournament. With a fantastic opening ceremony it set the standard for the week. West struggled in some games, yet ground out the results they needed in others to Qualify top of their Group. They got to the last 16 and drew 1-1 which meant penalties and lost 5-4 to be knowcked out. It was still a great trip with days at the Beach to relax.
