Celtic youth side face Borussia Dortmund today


Celtic’s youth side face FC Blue Stars and Borussia Dortmund today in the Blue Stars/FIFA Youth Cup in Zurich.

Stevie Frail’s side have been drawn in Group B of the prestigeous tournament and will play FC Zurich and Club Americas tomorrow in the ten team event.

With Scotland’s u-19 international side having a get together and Celtic defending the Hong Kong 7’s Cup at the weekend Frail has been unable to take his double winning squad to Zurich.

He said:¬† “We’ve got a good group of players with us made up from the u-19 and u-17 squads plus a couple of trialists to take a look at.

“Making the best use of your squad is important in tournaments like this with the games lasting twenty minutes each half.

“The Swiss sides will be geared up to do well and it was an all Swiss final last year. Dortmund will be a strong side and I’d imagine that Club America will have a lot of flair.

“The players are looking forward to the challenge and are looking to do well.

“We’ve had a good season at youth level and it would be fantastic if we could pick up another trophy this week.”

Blue Stars v Celtic k.o 2.50pm, Celtic v Dortmund  5.20pm. Games last 20 minutes each half.

Celtic squad includes: Andy Kennedy, Robbie Thomson, Lewis Toshney, Kiran Brennan, Stephen O’Donnell, Curtis Jones, Michael Ordish, Callum Bagshaw, Greig Spence, Liam Gormley, Jackson Irvine, Paul George.
