Copenhagen Here We Come

“We’re all going on a European tour!”

That’s been the refrain at recent games and becomes a reality tomorrow when we make history by playing our first ever overseas competitive fixture.

Over 80 Town fans are believed to be making the trip to Copenhagen to see us take on the current Fenix champions BK Skjold in Group A of the 12-team, four-group tournament (kickoff 6pm local time, 5pm uk).

As most of you will know, we won the corresponding game 3-1 in late November and also have to play Welsh side Llantwit Major FC twice for the right to reach the final four in Italy in May.

Those not travelling to the Danish capital should be able to watch the  live stream of the game through the competition’s YouTube channel.

“I think everyone connected with the club is massively looking forward to the game in Copenhagen,” said manager Gavin Macpherson.

“We have the chance to compete in a competition beyond our usual boundaries that most clubs at our level won’t ever experience.”

“After Saturday’s difficulties it gives all of us the chance to focus our energy on the Fenix Trophy.  I’m always in awe of our travelling support who will be there in numbers again, just the extra boost for the players to more than embrace the challenge ahead which will be a difficult one. We will need to be at our best.”
