West Park 2004 provided opposition for a visiting team from Yunnan, China, who are in Scotland for coaching/training with Celtic FC as part of their overseas development programme.
Our 2004 Navy team and players from our 2004 Gold team played a friendly match together at Celtic’s Training Centre in Lennoxtown on 14 July and the competitiveness and sportsmanship by both sets of players were a credit to their Clubs.
In very warm conditions, the match was a evenly balanced affair, with the Chinese team finally winning 1-0 with plenty of great attacking football on show from both teams.
It was a great experience for our West Park players having the opportunity to play against a team from abroad and to be able to play at first class facilities used by professional players.
The West Park players really enjoyed the opportunity to play the match, and played impressively despite not even started pre-season training yet! Thanks to Kirsty from our Girls Academy, and Celtic FC for arranging the match, its greatly appreciated.
