Success in Spain for Newcastle United Foundation
Newcastle United Foundation’s PAN Disability team returned home from Spain on Thursday 5 July, having won the inclusive section of the Costa Blanca Cup.
The Foundation handpicked a team from the clubs it works with all year round to take part, and – following an emphatic 7-0 victory over Levante and a comfortable 6-2 win over Villareal – reached the final, where Valencia awaited them.
Another superb performance followed, with the Foundation winning 4-1 to take home the Costa Blanca Inclusive title.
The Costa Blanca Cup takes place once a year and NUFC Foundation were the only English team represented in this year’s inclusive section.
Northumberland FA would like to congratulate the Foundation’s players and staff on this fantastic achievement.
