AFC Players in Spain

By Almaden Soccer, 04/19/19, 3:30PM EDT


We are pleased to showcase six of our players from our 2003 Quicksilver NPL Team (Shelby, Kaiya, Emily, Meredith, Jaden, and Beth) that are currently playing in the Valencia Cup in Spain.  We are very proud of these girls and all of the work that they put in during their training sessions and on the field in their games.  

This opportunity was made possible through the girls commitment and desire to play at a high level during their time at Almaden FC.  From the hard work and ability the girls have shown in the past three years and our affiliation with GPS through FC Bayern, fantastic opportunities such as these for the girls and many more have been created for players within AFC.  

When asked about her experience, Shelby said, "One of the greatest experiences of the trip was being able to feel the soccer culture of Spain. Everywhere I looked there was something soccer related whether it was a billboard, locals supporting Valencia FC, or kids playing around with a soccer ball. It really was a once in a lifetime trip."
